An immersive theatrical interpretation of all of the classic horror figures as we lead our audience through a one hour, 1.5 km self-guided walk through the bowels of the historic castle.
Throughout the experience, the audience is immersed in a variety of theatrically designed sets in gardens and chambers below the castle. Each of these introducing characters in the environmental theatre, in which the physical location, rather than being a traditional playhouse, creates the actual setting. The traditional set change does not exist but is created by having the audience move on to the next scene. A crescendo of the production is the 3D projection on the exterior of the castle which brings the characters of the storyline and the walls of the castle to life.

We are extremely happy to announce our first introduction ukulele class. Since we started our in-school ukulele program, we have seen an enormous growth in the instrument’s popularity. Ukulele is an easy, portable, inexpensive, and unique instrument known for its “island” sound. You can’t help but smile when you hear the soothing sound of a ukulele. Our drop in Ukulele class is geared towards beginners. Whether you have experience playing an instrument or have never picked up a Ukulele, everyone will be playing a few songs at the end of this one hour introduction class. Our teacher, Glen Richardson is a registered TDSB instructor and has been teaching music to students of all ages for over 15 years. He has the unique ability to breakdown the intricacies of learning a new instrument and always stresses the fun in music. Throughout the hour, students will learn the basics of the Ukulele (tuning, parts of the uke, & how to hold the ukulele properly). Glen will introduce a few basic chords and a basic strumming pattern. With these two elements, everyone will be playing a song by the end of the intro lesson and have a better understanding of rhythm, melody and a greater appreciation of music as a whole. We will also provide a take home chord chart and list of songs to play using the two or three chords introduced in the first lesson. A sample of past easy songs and melodies from our in-school lessons include: Iron Man, Eye of the Tiger, James Bond Theme, Bat Man, Smoke on the Water, Eleanor Rigby, Yellow Submarine and many more.
