The show that rocked Britain’s Got Talent returns to the Pavilion Theatre in Worthing with a new show set in 1920s Berlin when the art cabaret was just beginning.
Combining grotesque and beautiful circus-acts with music by Dr Haze and the Interceptors from Hell, The Circus of Horrors tells the gory story of a struggling cabaret venue owner who employs Dr Haze and his Vampire Vaudeville show in a desperate attempt to increase sales.
Featuring hair-hanging beauties, twisted contortionists, flying aerialists, gyrating jugglers, voodoo warriors, pickled people, sword swallowers and its latest star The Ventriloquist, the new show has been inspired by evil ventriloquist movies such as Devil Doll and The Dead of Night.
The story twists and turns as the demonic dummy seems to take on a life of its own surrounded by the mix of performers from the dare-devil trapeze artists to a contortionist who fires a longbow with her feet.
Dr Haze says: “16 years after its conception at the 1995 Glastonbury Festival our show has gone on to tour the world, achieving cult status and dragging circus screaming and shouting into the 21st century and beyond.”
Circus of Horrors: The Ventriloquist is at the Pavilion Theatre, Worthing on Tuesday, January 24 at 7.30pm. Over-18s only. Box office: 01903 206 206 or www.worthingtheatres.co.uk.
