Two and a half stars
6004 Camden St.
Without the bells and whistles of a high-budget haunting, Nightmare on Edgewood offers classic horrors with enthusiastic performances, sparing none of the traditional characters or nuances needed for a freshly soiled pair of pantaloons. This is the final year for Nightmare on Edgewood; a sad ending to a Southside tradition that lasted several years. Aside from its elite entertainment value and tradition, Edgewood deserves special attention because of its built-in philanthropy and community building; proceeds benefit the Edgewood Athletic Association, the baseball and softball diamonds on which the event is located. Through Nov. 1 (A discount is offered for those wearing a costume on Halloween night.); 317-783-9523, www.edgewoodathletics.org.
