Spooky sounds. Soulful ghosts, mutant romantics, and witches who cook.
All these ingredients make up "Cirque du Horror," an original Halloween musical that started Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival. Composed by Denton’s own David J. Pierce, the family-friendly all-ages show features musical sketches about ghouls, monsters, and mortals as they encounter All Hallow’s Eve. The festivities are facilitated by the ache-y, break-y emcee Grampula, a geriatric vampire who thinks he’s got jokes.
Performances are part of Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival at 4:30 and 9:15 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, and a 5 p.m. matinee will be on Sunday, Oct. 28. All performances are at Dan’s Silverleaf, 103 Industrial St. in downtown Denton.
Costumes encouraged. Table seating costs $25 per person, rear seating costs $20 per person, general admission/standing costs $15 and $7 for ages 12 and younger. www.cirqueduhorror.com
