The Story

Follow Boris and Bertha as they investigate creepy goings on in Cemeteria, a mountain top village in the heart of Transylvania, where dark secrets and mad scientists dwell side by side. Dracula, Dr Frank N Stein and Igor as well as the Werewolf all play their part. All the elements of traditional family entertainment are here – songs, laughter, slapstick and things that go bump in the night! And don’t be surprised if a certain cow makes an appearance, too…

Reviews

Six out of six stars from a six year old in CPH Post!

[…] Nicole Wardell as Frankenstein, Mario Paganini as Dame Bloodengutz and Tai Birkholm Segel as the henpecked Dracula are particularly enjoyable […] Albin Hagmayer lends full-blooded karaoke vocals to The Wolfman […], and Frankenstein’s Monster is given a genuinely surprising and touching twist.

[My six year old daughter] was dancing in her seat through the musical numbers (again, all of a distinctly retro flavour, mostly lifted from 80s/90s films: from ‘Ghostbusters’ to ‘Titanic’) and bellowing her ‘It’s behind you’ with full gusto. And ultimately of course, that is the litmus test of any pantomime. […] when the kids are this entertained, you’re likely to forgive a lot. I recommend parents order a stiff drink during the interval. It helped.*

On leaving the Krudttønden theatre, my daughter caught sight of the poster. “Is it February yet?” she asked. “No,” I replied, “that’s when the show ends.” Her eyes widened: “Woah, can we come and see it every day??”

* And the CTC would like to take this opportunity to remind people that drinks, stiff or otherwise, are available in Krudttønden’s foyer before and after the show as well as during the interval!
