Where Monsters Come to Slay
VAMP is a funny-as-hell original musical burlesque inspired by classic horror movies and everything that goes hump in the night. The show tells the tale a young woman’s sinful awakening as she is ripped from her simple, conservative upbringing and is forced to fight for her life in a dark, mysterious realm where up is down, bad is good, and wrong is oh-so-right. Our hero, Grace, is quickly and relentlessly tormented by Vampira, a glamorous vixen of horror, and is forced to risk everything to overcome her fears and earn her way back home. Along the way Grace must learn valuable lessons about herself as she fights off hoards of maniacal monsters, including zombies, Frankenstein’s monster, vampires, werewolves, witches, ghosts, mummies and, of course, clowns, in order to survive.
Vamp combines circus, the art of burlesque and storytelling traditions of musical theatre to create a tantalizing, nightmarish world where anything is possible, and nothing is as it seems. The show will captivate and tease you as you tap your toes to an eclectic mix of popular songs and watch your favourite creatures of the night come alive.
