Captain Morgan Presents Legends of Horror at Casa Loma
An immersive theatrical interpretation of all of the classic horror figures as we lead our audience through a one hour, 2 km self-guided walking tour commencing in the lower gardens of Casa Loma and winding its way through the castles tunnels and darkest spaces never before open to the public. The crescendo of the experience is a dramatic 3D imagery projection on the exterior of the castle, designed to excite even the most skeptical of guests this Halloween season.
Throughout the over 1 hour 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.
The theatrical action, incorporates the most recognized characters of the horror genre immersed in their associated environments. These characters are brought to life by over 70 actors and feature beautifully created sets and vignettes from Dracula rising from his crypt, to the Creature from the Black Lagoon slithering in the swamp, the Phantom of the Opera with his captive in the bowels of the boiler room and a final tribute to one of the greatest monsters of all time; celebrating the 200 anniversary of its creation. The production leads its audience on a macabre chase for love and immortality.
Legends is set on the 5 acre grounds of Casa Loma and in the depths of the castles 90,000 square foot structure. Though the audience is given no programme and there is no speaking from either the actors or audience. The actors and their environment all adopt the dress, decor, and aesthetic style of the classic horror novels, inspired by the shadowy and anxious atmosphere of film noir. The actors elaborate masks and costumes and their performance in passionate group settings, solitary scenes and on occasion choreographed dances all to provoke thought and personal interpretation of the experience.
