Our stories

“The Lighthouse Keepers”

Based on a true tale of survival, The Lighthouse Keepers will transport the audience to 1950s Nova Scotia where a young married couple finds themselves trapped in their dream home by the storm of the century. What will happen when everything is taken from them? Who will make it out alive?

“The Last Performance of Doctor Stubs, the Amazing Chainsaw Magician”

Doctor Stubs - stuntman and chainsaw juggler extraordinaire - earned worldwide fame 20 years ago with his thrilling sideshow acts. Now he is back in Mount Holly for a hilarious friends & family performance before his next breathtaking tour. Don’t turn away or you’ll miss the excitement that has shocked audiences around the world!

HP Lovecraft’s “From Beyond”

Our grand finale, From Beyond, will take you deep into the mind of weird fiction author H. P. Lovecraft. When the audience is summoned to Doctor Tillinghast’s laboratory atop his decrepit Victorian manor, From Beyond will prove that human sanity is too fragile to experience the boundless sensations of the cosmos. “I think it is beyond doubt that H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.” ~Stephen King

At no point during the performance will the audience be touched or harassed. All environmental effects have been tested to ensure your safety and comfort.
