Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure 2017: The Farewell Tour
Bill and Ted are ready to rock at Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights before they move on to their future adventures. After 26 years of Excellent Halloween Adventures, these pop-culture icons are bringing their Farewell Tour to Halloween Horror Nights. Party on as the phone booth lands one more time at Universal Orlando.
Over the years, this show has morphed and shifted to fit with the changing tides of pop-culture. But at its heart, it has remained true to its nature. The Wyld Stallyns, from San Dimas—and their time-travelling phone booth—find themselves in the middle of pop-culture-parody chaos and must somehow save the world yet again.
But now the time has come for these most outstanding dudes to find adventure in other places and other times.
On a personal note, I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of writing for and directing Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure for the past 7 years. It goes without saying that this show means a lot to me. Working on Bill and Ted’s has become one of the most enjoyable parts of my year—and they have meant a lot to so many people.
Since 1992, hundreds of talented individuals have worked on its production and numerous performers have graced its stage. It also means a lot to the fans. Wyld Stallyn fans are loyal, supportive and the central reason the boys have had so many adventures.
The “Farewell Tour” gives us the perfect opportunity to give Bill S. Preston, Esquire and Ted “Theodore” Logan a proper sendoff. This year’s show is everything you’d expect from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure. It’s relevant. It’s ridiculous. It’s irreverent. It’s edgy. And at the end of the day… it’s just a good time.
Years from now, we’ll look back at all of the unrestrained joy this show provided for so many of us. And honestly, there may never be anything quite like it again.
So, join us this Halloween. We’ll laugh. We’ll dance. We may shed a tear or two. We’ll take with us some most triumphant memories.
And we’ll never forget Bill and Ted’s simple mantra which still rings true today—“Be excellent to each other.”
