STEEL CITY ART WORKS SHOW
Steel City Art Works, 216 S. Union Ave., will host an open house of “Home is Where the
Art Is” on First Friday (Nov. 6) from noon to 7 p.m.
The gallery will be open daily in November: noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday. During the month, many members will participate in a half-off sale: buy one item, get the second item of the same artist for half off.
Featured artists in November are June Galaz, an abstract acrylic artist; Kaley Rose, who paints with acrylics and creates jewelry with leather, copper and dichroic glass; Cheryl Scott, a painter of whimsical animals, who also upcycles furniture into art and recycles unexpected materials to make robot and clock sculptures; and Jill M. Starkey, who works equally in acrylics and pastels, and also teaches pastels, drawing and color theory to adults.
COMMUNITY HALLOWEEN HAUNT
American Music Icons Entertainment and the Pueblo Convention Center are partnering for the second Pueblo Community Halloween Haunt.
“The Halloween Horror Experience: “Nightmare Before COVID” is billed as a family friendly walk-through a haunted experience, from 5 to 9 p.m. through Halloween.
“This year’s haunted experience will feature more than 4,000 square feet of Halloween decor inside of a safe, family friendly haunted walk-through adventure,” said Pueblo native Sonny “G” Gonzalez, the man behind American Music Icons Entertainment. “It’s full of haunted scenes and creepy animatronic props that are dying to give you a most spooktacular and exciting Halloween.”
“Bring your best costume, bring your favorite trick-or-treaters, bring your spooky friends, bring your family,” Sonny G added. “And don’t forget to wear your ‘mask,'” with all staff adhering to current COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.

VAMPIRE DETECTIVE AGENCY
What would you do if you were a 500-year-old vampire who is bored with life?
How about opening a detective agency?
That’s the premise of “Vampire Detective Agency,” playing The Party People and Theater of Mystery, 685 S. Union Ave., Friday and Saturday.
With tickets priced at $25, showtime is 6:30 p.m. and includes dinner. For adults, a cash bar is available.

On Nov. 6 and 7 at the Theater of Mystery, a “Magic is Back” dinner show starts at 6:30 p.m. The show will include close-up magic, a stage show and dinner. Tickets are $25.
VINTAGE HITCHCOCK: A LIVE RADIO PLAY
Just in time for Halloween, spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast.
Written by Joe Landry and directed by Taylor Gilman, a faculty member at the Arts Academy at Pueblo County High School, “Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play” will stream at ShowShare: Broadway on Demand today and Saturday. Viewing price is $20.
With adaptions of early Hitchcock films “The Lodger,” “Sabotage” and “The 39 Steps,” “Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play” is a triple feature that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence and a devastating explosion.
