Belfast Maskers will present “Tales from the Muck,” an anthology of short horror plays, at 7 p.m. on October 23, 24, 29 and 30, and two shows on Halloween, October 31 — a 5 p.m. show that will be toned down a bit for younger audiences, though parental discretion is still advised, and a final show at 7 p.m. The plays will be performed outside the theater at 17 Court Street, with socially distanced seating in the street.

“Tales from the Muck” will feature five short plays that will take theatergoers on a journey through the haunted past, the frozen Arctic, outer space and beyond the grave.

Only 45 seats will be available for each evening’s performance, and they must be purchased online. Attendees are advised to bring their own chairs and to dress warmly.
