Why do people put dirty change in your bag of candy?! Weird.

Halloween is the most theatrical holiday, so it makes perfect sense that Broadway actors—who know a thing or two about rocking a costume—would embrace the spooky season. We asked your favorite stage stars to share their memories of yummy treats, silly tricks and the best and worst costumes they ever wore. Read on for inspiration, and Happy Halloween!

RORY O'MALLEY (Elder McKinley in The Book of Mormon)

What was your favorite Halloween costume of all time, and how old were you when you wore it?
In second grade I was Cubbi Gummi, the youngest of Disney's Gummi Bears.The whole day at school I bounced everywhere I went. I'm sure my teachers loved me.

What’s the most embarrassing Halloween costume you ever wore?
I was a priest two years in a row in middle school. Poor planning.

What’s your favorite Halloween candy, and why?
The candy corn pumpkins! They are candy corn but even bigger!!!

What’s the worst “treat” you were ever given on Halloween?
Pennies! Why do people put dirty change in your bag of candy?! Weird.

Have you ever dressed up as a Broadway character? If so, which one?
The Phantom of the Opera...but it wasn't Halloween. No further comment.

What is your favorite Halloween horror movie, and why?
I am way too scared to watch horror movies. As a kid, I had nightmares about Freddy Krueger just from the trailers on TV!

What do you think is the hottest Broadway-themed costume for 2011?
A Mormon Missionary of course!

What is your Halloween costume this year?
A Mormon Missionary of course!

What do you love most about Halloween?
I love that everyone gets so excited to get in to a costume when I put one on every day for a living. It reminds me how cool my job is and how lucky I am. Every day is Halloween!
