Clueless Maidens? Check. Vampires? Check. A grizzled Sea Captain? Sure, why not? This
riotous puppet spoof ticks all of the Gothic boxes . You’ll be surprised that four hands held in
the air with bits of fabric on them, can produce so many laughs. A show for kids that adults will love too!

Directed by Frank Meschkuleit (My Big Fat German Puppet Show) and produced by Dan Redican (It’s Always You!) Written and performed by Madeleine Redican (“comic scene stealer” The More the Merrier …”Hilarious” Broadway World) Night at Castle Impendingdoom brings all the horror tropes out in the daylight where they don’t look one bit scary and we can all have a great big laugh – guaranteed to delight!
