A Circus of Horrors at the Grove

AFTER all the selection-box gorging, mulled wine guzzling and mince pie munching, this new show is the perfect antidote for the January blues.

A refreshing change from Christmas fairytales and festive pantomimes,

The Circus of Horrors is coming to The Grove in Dunstable.

Set in 1921, Dr Haze rolls into Berlin with his Vampire Vaudeville show. The impressive production involves twisted contortionists, flying aerialists, demon dwarves, gyrating jugglers, voodoo warriors, pickled people, sword swallowers and hair hanging beauties.

I don’t know about you, but I’m quite intrigued by the ‘pickled people’ - I just hope they don’t ask for audience participation!

The Ventriloquist is the star of the show, sending a shiver down your spine as the demonic dummy takes on a life of its own.

The story was inspired by the Evil Ventriloquist movies Devil Doll and The Dead of Night and follows on from the huge success of The Asylum and The Day of the Dead, the show that rocked Britain’s Got Talent.

When I heard it was set in the twenties, I was looking forward to seeing the flapper fashion from that decadent decade, but by the sounds of the demon dwarves and voodoo warriors, fringed dresses and sharp bobs may not feature too heavily. It’s sure to be a sensational show though, so book tickets now for Saturday January 21 by calling the Box Office on 01582 602080 or go to: www.grovetheatre.co.uk. Suitable for over 18s only.
