Production details

This time, the show commences in 1900. It was the last few years of Queen Victoria's reign, Jack the Ripper was at large and this was the age of the freak show. So, walk along the midway and step straight into the twisted world of the Circus of Horrors. Once inside, you'll come face to face with oddities, fakiers and sensational circus acts bringing you an amazing amalgamation of trapeze artists, sword swallowers, snake charmers, siamese twins and vampires, all presided over by the undead ringmaster Dr Haze. However, things start to go horribly wrong when a young girl dares to run away and join the circus only to be sucked into a world of lechery and depravity and eventually is sacrificed in a graveyard surrounded by flying skeletons. However, Vampires never die and our young heroine is reborn 120 years later. Now the pennyfarthings have been replaced by huge motorbikes, the swords have been replaced by chainsaws and the boardwalk is now sin city and home to the legions of the undead and mutants. This post apocalyptic metropolis is controlled by the self styled master Dr Haze and our heroine is hell bent on revenge on the man who turned her into a creature of the night over a century earlier. But just as sweet revenge is about to be executed, Dr Haze escapes the jaws of the giant buzz saw and turns sin city into a flaming inferno.
