The Castle Spectre

The Castle Spectre

March 13 - 16, 2014
Fred Thury Studio Theatre, 258 Vanier College

A noble, hunted hero and a much-maligned heroine of mysterious origin must fight for their love and their very lives against the nefarious designs set against them by the dread lord of a decaying castle. Amidst menacing minions, a shrieking soubrette, a cowardly ecclesiastic and a wisecracking knave, will our heroes see virtue triumph over evil? If they don't, they will be doomed to be forever entombed in the depths of darkness that lay under the shadow of...the Castle Spectre.

Adapted from the 1797 original by Matthew Lewis and heightened by original accompaniment, The Castle Spectre is the quintessential example of Gothic Melodrama, with all the attendant sinister scheming, wailing emotions, base buffoonery and spooky, eerie fun.
