On Thursday night, T@SC (Theatre at Sterling College) and CAB (Campus Activities Board) hosted their annual Halloween Bash in Wilson Hall. The event featured a haunted house, dancing, cotton candy, apple bobbing, pumpkin carving, along with Sterling’s annual costume contest.
The haunted house winded through Lower Wilson Hall and was filled with Sterling College actors dressed in horror makeup and clothes covered in fake blood. Strobe lights flashed as the actors jumped out to scare students on the way to Upper Wilson, where the Halloween Bash took place.
Kimberly Loya-Enriquez is a freshman double majoring in theatre and music. In the haunted house, she played the role of La Llorona, a character from a Latin American urban legend.
“I’ve never participated in any Halloween events before,” she said, “It was a lot of fun.”
The event began with food, apple bobbing, and dancing to Halloween-themed music. When enough students arrived, they danced the “Cupid Shuffle”.
The next portion was devoted to the pumpkin-carving contest. Three pumpkins were carved, and the judges decided the winner was a pumpkin vomiting out its insides.
The final parts of the night were devoted to dancing and the costume contest. Winners were picked in the areas of “Best Guy Costume”, “Best Girl Costume”, “Best Couples Costume”, and “Best Group Costume”.
Seth Rogers won “Best Guy Costume” for his Doctor Who attire.
Kristen Diaz won “Best Girl Costume” for her Mary Poppins outfit.
Chloe Heard and Shelby Stowe won “Best Couples Costume” for their “Sinking Titanic” Costume.
The “Best Group Costume” went to a group dressed-up as the cast of “Riverdale”.
The night winded down with more dancing and camaraderie until 11 P.M.
Lexi Jarvis, a freshman Musical Theatre Major helped with the haunted house in Lower Wilson Hall.
“I enjoyed the event,” Jarvis said, “We were with a lot of fun people, and no one got hurt or fainted in the haunted house.”
T@SC is hosting a murder mystery event later this semester. The date is to be announced at a later time.
CAB’s next event, the “Lip Sync Battle” will be held on November 1 from 8-10 P.M.
