From the seething madness of Charles Dickens’ “A Madman’s Manuscript” to the bloody and visceral revenge of the Hindu “Tale of the Churel”, the macabre offerings of centuries old ghastly Nursery Rhymes from “Gammer Gurton’s Garland” and crashing headlong into the inescapable and deathly menace of one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most well known works “The Masque of the Red Death” – and much, MUCH more! Phantasmagoria will take to the stage with true vengeance!

“The players in Phantasmagoria embody – and dramatically emote – these stories in their signature way, . . .This was the circus every punk and goth kid wanted to run off with in their childhood.” – Watermark

With the ongoing critically acclaimed success of eight years of original shows – as well as special events and appearances throughout the year – “WICKEDEST TALES OF ALL”  features the “Best Of” Phantasmagoria’s – all in newly approached re-imagined versions – presenting us with a truly “Phantasmagorical” way to spend a whimsically macabre and exhilarating evening of theater!
