When: Saturdays. Continues through Nov. 9 2013
Price: $8

He’s hot, he’s friendly, and he’s dead. The morbid tilt of Seymour Reit and Joe Oriolo’s creation resulted in some of the strangest material ever pitched to children: weird, plaintive little tales of loneliness, suicidal desperation and death (but cute!). Yet kids are way less troubled by this kind of thing than adults, and Casper remains the sweetest li’l blob of paranormal ectoplasm ever — a bed-sheeted buddy whose message to young’uns (to the frequent discomfort of parents) is basically: Hey, kids, don’t fear the reaper. Richard Stein’s Olde Worlde Theater Company frequently packs out The Belcourt on Saturday mornings with its interactive spectacles joining music, dance, pantomime and activity; this should make a fine introduction for first-timers and ideal not-scary Halloween fun for regulars
