HERE FOR MORE...
The Circus of Horrors: The Four Chapters From Hell
Imagine if Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil!
Over 15 years of trampling the bloody boards, The Circus of Horrors has achieved cult status while dragging circus screaming and shouting into the 21st century. Following on the huge success of The Asylum and The Day of the Dead shows, The Circus of Horrors has had a major revamp and is back rockin’ & shockin’ with a special brand new show created especially to celebrate its 15th bloody year. The Four Chapters from Hell contains some of the greatest, most bizarre & beautiful Circus acts on earth. From dare-devil flying trapeze to a vampiric crow woman suspended only by her hair, from whirlwind roller skaters to sword swallowers. All this plus pickled and bendy people, voodoo warriors, knife throwers and an almighty cast of 26 of the wildest, weirdest but most of all greatest performers on earth. The show will take you on a journey though all four of the Circus of Horrors incarnations, beginning in a French Asylum where the inmates are liberated and become the performers in the show. After killing their leader, they are filled with remorse and move to Mexico to try and revive him in the Day of the Dead celebrations. The show then moves into Victorian London. It is the late 1890s and the Freak Show has come to town. A young girl, Ragen born in the Asylum, is woken from her deep sleep and runs away to join the circus before she is sacrificed by the evil and undead Dr Haze and fed to the vampires. But vampires never die and the final twist to the story takes us into the future, and into 2020, a futuristic vision of mad max style civilization inhabited by vampires, zombies and the undead. Regan, who is now also undead seeks revenge on her evil slayer, all of course to disastrous consequences. This is without a doubt a musical masterpiece with the help of the Devil driven Rock n Roll of Dr Haze & the Interceptors From Hell.
