Spooky Story Time with Alice Cooper

Join architect of shock rock Alice Cooper for a spooky story session to celebrate the season (suitable for children ages 6+ with an appetite for fright).

“Halloween celebrations are going to look a little different this year, so I’m taking my penchant for terror to the scariest place I know – the internet,” Alice Cooper said. “During my Experience, I’ll be sharing two of my favorite scary children’s books, all for a good cause.”

100 percent of proceeds from bookings for Alice Cooper’s Social Impact Experience will benefit North Star Reach, a barrier-free, fully accessible, medical specialty camp that provides incredible, life-changing camp experiences for children with significant health challenges and their families, all at no charge.

Booking for Alice Cooper’s Experience open Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 9 a.m. PT, so grab a seat – if you dare.
