Invitation-only Halloween Gala offers fiendish fun

When the creative folks of The Hub City Players put their heads together, magic happens. Hattiesburg’s professional theatre company is no stranger to dressing up for shows. But inspired by the cult classic film “Hocus Pocus,” they are inviting people to out-do themselves for a super exclusive, adults-only, invitation-only Halloween costume gala, Brewhaha. 

Guests will be invited to a secret location, communicated to them personally the week of the party. Once there, they will be treated to a special witch’s brew, food, entertainment and evening of devilish surprises! A cash bar will be augmented by a special selection of craft beer, picked just for the season.

Event organizer Mike Lopinto is excited to unleash this new event on the community. “I always try to create experiences for myself and for my community,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a musical show or a costume ball, I want people to have a great time and leave wanting more. Planning this has been a dream for years and I know people will be talking about it long after its demise.” [He laughs eerily!]

All the fun happens at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21. Tickets are $75 per person. However, you must know “the right ghoul” to get instructions on how to get tickets! Ask around – and do it soon! A very limited number of tickets are available and are already being distributed. For more information, visit
