Are you afraid of the dark?

If you love to partake in spooky experiences (especially as Halloween nears), you might be excited to hear that a uniquely eerie event is taking place at the Small Arms Inspection Building (SAIB), Mississauga’s newest cultural hub. 

This October, dance-theatre company Frog in Hand will host a Stories in the Woods event.

It will take place on Oct. 4 and 5 at the SAIB (1352 Lakeshore Rd E). On Friday, the event will kick off at 7:00 p.m. On Saturday, attendees can choose between the 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm events. 

According to the Eventbrite page, the “eerie, poetic performance” will unfold in the forest surrounding a heritage site. 

“Audiences will be led along paths in the woods where strange and wonderful creatures wait to fill them with wonder. Inspired by nature and the climate crisis, the show will bring guests face-to-face with performers as they encounter scenes up close in the night air,” the page reads. 

Anyone who is interested in attending should note that the performance will occur mostly outdoors, rain or shine. Guests are advised to wear sensible shoes and a light jacket. Umbrellas are also recommended. 

Guests should also note that the paths require a mild amount of physical work to navigate, but assistance is available for patrons with mobility or sensory needs. If you have a concern but would like to participate, you can identify yourself to a front of house staff member.

Tickets are $25.
