Lord Franzannian hosts the 10th edition of this annual program. He’s the alter ego of storyteller/actor/director/producer Elizabeth Lord, transformed with rosy cheeks and a fake mustache. Obsidian is a bigger venue than the show's original home, the Midnight Sun, which is important because this show has grown increasingly popular over the years. Past favorites Sam Miller and Lauren O’Neill are back this year, as is Lord herself, which is to say she’ll do skits as well as hosting the extravaganza as Lord Franzannian.
When: 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday, Oct. 14-16 and 21-23;
a family-friendly matinee at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23
414 Fourth Ave. E, Olympia
