If you’re wondering how to celebrate this Halloweekend (and you don’t have your social calendar handy), fear not—Her Campus has got you covered! From concerts and plays to parties and pregames, we’ve got the scoop on all the ghastliest events on campus! ;)

HRG&SP Presents: Ruddigore; or, The Witch’s Curse

Hosted by the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert & Sullivan Players. Agassiz Theater, 2:00 PM or 8:00 PM.

Join the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert & Sullivan Players as we bring this classic, hilarious, and spooky tale to life in the historic Agassiz Theatre.

Many years ago, a witch cursed the Baronets of Ruddigore to commit a crime every day …or else die in agony. The Baronet Sir Ruthven has lived as “Robin Oakapple” for many years, avoiding the demands of the curse so he might seek love with the beautiful but shy Rose Maybud. But when his deception is revealed, he falls under the horrible curse. Ghostly portraits come to life, angry ancestors appear, and true love is tested!
