Join us this year as Gentleman Death & the Immortal Artist attempt to lure the Physician of Fright himself, Dr. Blood, out of retirement by unleashing his long-banished Chosen Ones and assemble the "Legion of the Damned." Witness this convergence of macabre, maniacal madness in this year’s unique and interactive show.
Gas Light Players Shocktale Show is daringly presented as a progressive black-box play combining all aspects of the theater craft with classic Grand Guignol special effects and theory.
The result is a high intensity, frighteningly fun and incredible interactive theatrical production that is artistic and visually stunning and appeals to the various aspects of fear, phobias and all things psychological.
It is not unusual for patrons to lose control of themselves, faint and outright panic during the course of this exhilarating, progressive performance.
Not to worry, our Guides are well-trained to handle the unknown and have taken a solemn vow to protect their tour-members at all costs from the perils and challenges that arise from the many diabolical creations that lurk within “Gentleman Death’s Legion of the Damned.”
Each year, Gas Light Players troupe members join forces with local artists to create the areas longest running, theatrically based haunted attraction from start to finish, that will thrill, chill and outright terrify even the most stoic of patrons.
