Terrifying toys

If there’s one thing that rivals creepy clowns—like the ones that have been plaguing rural California lately—it would be creepy dolls. You can experience a live-action visitation of the latter at Haunted Toy Box, an aerial arts performance at the Suspended Motion Aerial Arts Academy in SLO, Oct. 24 and 25, at 7 p.m. The show will combine dance elements with aerial apparatuses like trapeze, lyra, and silk, all within the Haunted Toy Box theme. Parental guidance is recommended, given some of the show’s darker moments. Tickets cost $10 to $15 and can be purchased at suspendedmotion.net or at the door. Suspended Motion is at 207 Suburban Road in San Luis Obispo.
