Dates, Times and Prices


A spooky show of terrible tales, bothersome books and gruesome goings on! The Haunted Bookshop has a story for everyone. Everyone, that is, with an appetite for the ghastly, the ghostly and the down right grizzly. Miss Cordelia Hemlock has tasked her assistant, Ransome Squelch, with traveling the world and snatching despicable stories to be lovingly bound into books. If you're lucky, the frankly frightening pair might even share some of them with you. It'd be their pleasure... or perhaps their curse. A weird and wonderfully dark show for horrid children and irresponsible adults.
