Cabaret Macabre

Happenstance Theater is a professional theatrical company which performs in various venues in and around Maryland.

Now in its 4th year, this annual excursion will be performed in Silver Spring, MD in October & November, and will also be part of the New Orleans Fringe Festival in November.
