Here There Be Monsters – Toronto Halloween tradition returns to the Eldritch Theatre


TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2023 – A Halloween tradition of dark curses, arcane magic, and eerie puppetry… For over 20 years Eldritch Theatre has been prowling the theatrical underground, earning audience acclaim and over 25 Dora Awards nominations and wins for their outstanding horror productions. Eldritch shows are “Toronto’s Spookiest Stage Shows” (Torontoist), and Jon Kaplan of NOW Magazine said Wuthergloom was “charming and chilling at the
same time… NNNN.”

Armed with a caravan of creepy puppets and dark parlour magic, Doctor Pretorious Wuthergloom the infamous necromancer, travelling exorcist and arcane medicine showman, presents a ghoulishly giddy series of tales about the monsters, cryptids, and weird creatures that haunt our mortal realm.

GASP! at the terrifying tales of child-eating faeries, and the cigar smoking Kapre of the Philippines! WEEP! at the sad fate that befell Edward Mordrake the Man With Two Faces! SHUDDER at the sight of Ghouls, Old Ones, Cosmic Horrors, the Toronto Tunnel Monster and the Dreaded Suburban Sasquatch!

Each tale is a fearful warning from the Goblin Universe, wrapped in impossible feats of magic that will warp your very sense of reality! But never fear! Doc Wuthergloom can save you, if only you purchase his Field Guide to Monsters! Step right up and be terrified and amazed! There’s room for one more! Recommended for those with
mature and jaded hearts.

Created by Eric Woolfe (Dora Nominee for Outstanding new play & performance for The Harrowing of Brimstone McReedy), Performed by Doctor Pretorious Wuthergloom as Himself (famous in this world and the next), Evil Designer Melanie McNeill (Dora Winner for Space Opera Zero! and Dora Nominee for Requiem for a
Gumshoe), and Emma Mackenzie Hillier as Camille.
