[Victoria, BC] Launch Pad Theatre to Turn Poe Over His Head!

Tickets are on now sale for this year’s Halloween shindig at Craigdarroch Castle. Some may say it’s the end of the world and the last days of disco!

Show times:
October 17, 18, 19,
24, 25, 26, 30, 31 at 8:00pm
October 20, 21, 27, 28 at 7:00pm and 9:00pm 

The gothic and the groovy will jibe with this dramatic new staging of some of the most unsettling stories of Edgar Allan Poe set in a 1970’s B-movie horror milieu and amplified with the disco sounds from the era. This show promises to be different than Launch Pad Theatre‘s past works. Kept in is the exploration of this historic venue (more rooms will be opened up) as this play moves from chamber to chamber (yes, a lot of stair climbing will be involved). Different is in the fact several stories will unfold than one!

In order to get the full experience, theatre-goers will have to return. Who knows, maybe you will have a chance encounter with this place’s real ghosts!

Guaranteed will be nods to these Poe classics:

  • Pit and the Pendulum
  • Ligeia
  • Tell-Tale Heart
  • Black Cat
  • Cask of Amontillado
  • Berenice
  • Premature Burial

Audiences are invited to come dressed in their clingiest, shiniest, disco attire and take refuge inside the protective walls of Craigdarroch Castle, away from the terrible blood-plague known as RED DEATH.

This show is a bubblegum-pop horror guaranteed to scare the funk out of you.
