Maudslay is Haunted

'Maudslay is Haunted' is an annual fundraiser for Theater in the Open at Maudsla

Maudslay is Haunted is a North Shore Kid favorite, and this year they are doing things a bit differently. Download the Maudslay is Haunted trail map at the Theater in the Open website, then bring your family to Maudslay State Park to enjoy a virtual self-guided haunting experience along the trail. We highly recommend this for Halloween fun for all ages because its spooky, and haunting, but not too scary. Join a cast of all ages for a one-hour walking tour through eerie vignettes, spooky sketches and haunting scenes, all in the autumn grandeur of Maudslay State Park.

When: 
Daily during park hours
