Take a night off from trick or treating this Halloween and relish in an adult-only evening with ArkansasStaged’s inaugural fully-produced play, Empanada Loca by Aaron Mark on SUN 10.29.17. Loosely inspired by the legend of Sweeney Todd, Empanda Loca, is a one-woman tour de force that tells the story of Delores, a plucky survivor, who leads us on a journey through the dank subway tunnels of Manhattan with her dark and bloody story. In an eat or be eaten world, Dolores has devoured her life’s challenges with a gruesome grin. Event begins with specialty empanadas crafted by award-winning chef Matthew McClure and themed craft cocktails from The Hive at 6pm, followed by the play at 7 pm. Event is free and open to the public (suggested donation of $10).
