Inspired by fairytales and school experiences, the imagination and humor of this production is thoroughly enjoyable.

We highly recommend Urban Death for Kidz! for horror fans of all ages. This is perhaps the first children’s horror play of its kind and is not to be missed.

So, should you bring your kids? Yes — if they’re keen on scary movies, haunted houses, and the like. If they’re easily spooked (like this reviewer), it might be best to wait a few years. But does Urban Death for Kidz also pack a punch for the over-18 crowd? It might not be as intense as Urban Death, but there are enough chills and thrills for audience members of any age. - RECOMMENDED

Make no mistake, Urban Death is creepy show, no matter one’s age. But this version is well-suited for ten-year-olds, and aims more for delightful chills and fun than abject terror. There are few, if any, jump scares, and the darker scenes will often produce a greater sense of wonder than fear. While less than half of the scenes could be described as pure horror (much of the rest being straight comedy), the creep factor emerges in short bursts, with increasing intensity, and leads to a delightful climax of spooky and magical scenes. The fear factor of the show could be compared to something like the Haunted Mansion, perhaps heightened by the intimacy of the theater and proximity of the performers.
