Just in time for the Season of Hauntings, the Ghastly Dreadfuls make their second appearance at Atlanta’s center for Puppetry Arts. If you think Puppet shows are for kids, you have another think coming. The Center has shows and workshops for the tikes, but the best stuff happens after dark with their adult shows.
The Ghastly Dreadfuls are a troop of Steampunk Ghosts – but perhaps they wouldn’t call themselves that. 19th Century living challenged – perhaps. They sing and dance and the puppets are wild.
Check out the best of last year’s show in a few clips here. The Ghastly Dreadfuls II: Handbook of Practical Hauntings and Other Phantasmagoria will be at the Center for Puppetry Arts October 14 – November 1. Tickets are on sale now – click here (There will be a half price show on Oct. 14th!)
Been to a Ghastly Dreadful show? Let me know what you thought!
NOW -For something completely different. OK really rather the same, but it rhymes – another puppet Steampunkesque video clip from Jason von Hinezmeyer – half of the Dreadful’s creative team. It was recorded also at the Center for Puppetry arts a few years ago and it’s called In Private. Rather cute. Enjoy! Let me know if you like it. I’m thinking about making Thursdays – Video days. Could be fun.
