Written by Nick Abeel, Darian Dauchan, Kristin Parker and Natalie Rich
Story developed by Kristin McCarthy Parker and Kyle Schaefer

Every 100 years, the planets align in such a way that allows Spooky Scientists access to an alternate dimension. A century ago, physicist Boris Gool entered and has not been heard from again. Brave the portal this October and help a modern-day Spooky Scientist as you encounter werewolves, witches, zombies and more in the search for what really happened to Boris.

Drive-Thru Drama is a social-distance theater format that brings people together for live theater from the comfort of their own cars. Actors will perform one cohesive story through scenes placed across the MCC parking lot. Audience members will simply roll down their windows and drive the route from actor to actor.
