Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this cloudy Thursday.

Halloween is creeping ever closer, and the the MSU Department of Theatre is ready. Students will once again transform the MSU Auditorium into a haunted estate with its seventh annual Haunted Aud fundraiser event.

Visitors can explore a chilling, underworld-themed tour of the auditorium with MSU theater students dressed as demons running the show. This event is not recommended for kids under 12.

8 p.m.-midnight. $15. MSU Auditorium, 149 Auditorium Road, East Lansing. (517) 355-6690, whartoncenter.com.

If something a little less scary suits your tastes, Lansing's newest improv comedy group is having a show tonight. Skildtrade is returning after their performance at Renegade Theatre Festival in August and promises a unique show. Read City Pulse's article about the group here.
