ImprovBoston's long-running Halloween bloodbath returns for another year of guts, gore and musical mayhem.

ImprovBoston welcomes live studio audiences for another terrifying season of the faux TV reality game show, The House Always Wins! Here, the games are dangerous, the contestants are desperate, the romance is devised, and the House is... Hungry. The music is original. The script is ridiculous. The blood is flowing. The audience is part of the messy, viscous action. Who will survive the show? At Gorefest, ImprovBoston's famed annual splatterfest, no one is safe.
General Admission: $25, $20 Students AT THE DOOR ONLY
Poncho Prices: $4 online, $5 at the door

GoreFest is a special event. No vouchers or gift certificates will be accepted.
Audience members will be splattered in fake blood, guts, and gore. Dress for the season. This “ponchos recommended” splatter musical is an immersive comedy experience audience members can see, smell, touch, and taste (for better and for worse). While most of our corn-syrup based (and gluten free!) fluids will come out in the wash, we can't be held responsible for clothing that doesn't survive. Don't wear your grandma's mink coat. Unless you hate your grandma's mink coat.
