On Wednesday night, RareWorks Theatre Company is giving audiences more treats than tricks with their latest production, Unwrap Your Candy. The performance is a series of one-act plays that promise to be alternately creepy and funny. 

The tales portray everything from the dangers of childhood to the horrors of becoming an adult. Unsuspecting audience members may even become a part of the story. Promotional material suggests a combination of American Horror Story crossed with The Twilight Zone. An evening of bedtime tales await if you so choose.

The show premiered Wednesday, but there’s still time to catch a performance this Thursday, April 10.
