Taking its cue from the classic Spook Shows of the past, Canal Park Playhouse revives this thrilling, chilling popular entertainment for the 21st Century. Kicking off with trailers from classic cult horror films from the 1950s, the magician Cardone takes the stage for a spellbinding magic show that embraces the strange, the macabre and the fantastical.
While HOUSE OF GHOSTLY HAUNTS is family friendly, no one under age 7 is permitted. The show ends in 10 minutes of complete darkness.
A pre-or-post show dinner is available at Canal Park Playhouse’s Waffle Iron Café. The dinner menu includes waffle iron-prepared gourmet sliders, entrée salads as well as hot-off-the-waffle-iron omelets and waffles. For a truly devilish dessert, the Playhouse’s famous Decadent Dark Chocolate Waffle is perfect pre or post-scarefest.
