It's All Hallow's Eve, and Cooger and Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show has come to town.

Hear the music, see the lights, shrug off life's worries and enter a place where dreams are not dreams, and wishes can be real.

All this awaits two boys trembling on the brink of manhood. But entering the smoke, mazes and mirrors, they will discover that not all dreams are worth the cost that must be paid . . .

Ray Bradbury's seminal tale of life in small-town America is as prescient today as it was sixty years ago.
