Get spooked just in time for Halloween during a performance of “The Medium” by OperaFest International.

Taking place 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, at the newly renovated Gateway Playhouse, the murder mystery opera is the group’s first appearance as a professional company. Performed in English, the show tells the story of a fake psychic who gets a little — ok, maybe a lot — creeped out when one of her phony séances appears to have actually worked. The two-act show was first performed on Broadway in 1947.

Tickets are $30 adults, $25 seniors, and $14 students. The playhouse is located at 738 Bay Ave., Somers Point. Call 609-653-0553 or go to
