Spooky Action Theater’s Annual Gala This Saturday, May 19th at 7 PM

In 2011, Spooky Action Theater became the recipient of a $1,600,000 bequest in the form of art works, antique furniture, vintage automobiles, and high fashion clothing and accessories. In between his producing duties, Richard Heinrich, Artistic Director, has spent the last year travelling the globe liquidating the estate.
