The Annex Theatre


July 6th, 2018 – July 14th, 2018


It’s dusk. Your car breaks down on an abandoned forest road, far away from home. Far away from the nearest phone. But there’s a cabin up ahead, with smoke spiralling from the chimney, and a light scent of fresh-baked cookies wafting out the windows. A lucky place to spend the night or make a phone call? Not if you’re in a 90’s horror movie. Enter the Circus Shop of Horrors, an eclectic musical revue, paying homage to beloved horror films, by melding the grotesque, with acrobatics, circus, dance, drag, and illusion! Enjoy seeing if you can identify all our references in the show. (
