From the creators of The Philly Zombie Prom comes the next wave in the celebration of the dark side! The call has been made for monsters from all corners of the Greater Philadelphia area and beyond to gather together for a night to showcase your beauty, your horror and your ability to socialize with other monsters!
It’s the inaugural Philadelphia Monster Ball where we encourage folks to come dressed as the monster from their dreams! Come as a monster we all know and love – or channel your inner-Frankenstein and come as your own creation.
When you enter The Trocadero stop by Monster Central to register for a chance to be one of the semi-finalists to take the stage and show the monster inside you. Not only will we have a panel of celebrity judges awarding prizes to the best monsters of the Ball, we’ll also be awarding Audience Favorites! (registration is free and open until 9:45pm)
Once inside enjoy the haunting mix from your host DJ Robert Drake and then get ready for a rare once-in-a-year gathering of The Monster Orchestra!
Led by the haunting sounds of The Divine Hand Ensemble Musical Director and Thereminist Mano Divina, The Monster Orchestra consists of The Divine Hand Ensemble and some incredible special guests – creating a live show that will both mesmerize and ignite bouts of joy (proving that monsters have a heart!)
Around 10pm the semi-finalists will be announced and called up to the historic stage at The Trocadero – where they can showcase their creations to everyone under the glorious stage lights! Celebrity judges will announce who are the Best Monsters of the Ball … additionally, the audience will roar/groan/moan with enthusiasm for their favorites and we’ll award Monster’s Favorite to that creation.
The Philadelphia Monster Ball is the unique alternative to those traditional Valentine Day dinners and dates .. and the PERFECT plan for those anti-Valentine folks just looking for something fun to do that night!
