OPAC Executive Director Carolyn Mullin said her team is pleased to partner with the Elite Theatre and offer a fun experience for the community.

“Elite Theatre and OPAC are excited to team up to present the performing arts in a fresh new way to our community,” Mullin said. “Elite Theatre has an extraordinary facility and amazing actors while OPAC is known for its phenomenal, head-turning events. Together, we’re increasing our impact and how we can best serve our community through the arts.”

Ventura County Harbor Department Director Michael Tripp said thrilled with this new attraction, as it will be open during the Channel Islands Harbor’s 2nd Annual Parade of Frights, a Halloween-themed boat parade scheduled on Saturday, Oct. 28.

“The Theatre of Shadows will be a great landside amenity for the Harbor’s Parade of Frights,” Director Tripp said. “I want the Channel Islands Harbor to be a top destination for Ventura County residents and visitors on Halloween weekend.”
