Producer Kevin Michael Clarke brings a terrifying new piece of English-language theatre and music to the stage in Prague this season.

Cabaret Macabre presents tales of vampires, ghosts and ghastly murderers, Old Prague legends retold in a unique musical horror format. A troop of undead actors and musicians conjure tales of nightmare and mystery before your very eyes, using techniques of black comedy and high drama, guaranteed to make you laugh yourself to death!

Cabaret Macabre opens with a local preview night on 21 April at 19:30 at Restaurace U Medvídků in the Kabaretní Sal (Cabaret Hall), Na Perštýně 7, Prague 1. This performance will include all of the entertainment and music of the full show. The bar will be open but dinner will not be served. Tickets will be sold for the special low price of 250 kc general admission, 200 kc for seniors and students.

Audiences will have the opportunity to witness the mystifying antics of Count Laczlo and his band of travelling players, a group of talented performers who were unfortunately all killed in the infamous vampire terror of Peklovice almost 300 years ago. Because of the unhappy circumstances of their deaths, these restless souls are doomed for all eternity to linger between this world and the next, forever performing their old-style cabaret and attracting victims from all over the world.

Cabaret Macabre is a new piece of original theatre created through the collaboration of a dedicated group of local and international artists. The show was written by Jeff Fritz and directed by Mélanie Rada, with music direction by Petr Kroutil, and featuring production design by Johanna-Mai Vihalem. The cast includes Fritz, Kroutil and Vihalem along with fellow actors Caryn Stringer, Polina Tikk and Christopher Tucker. They are backed up by a four-piece band featuring Kroutil on saxophone, flute and clarinet, with Jakub Urban on keyboards, Petr Zimak on drums, and Antonin Sturma on bass.

Beginning Wednesday, 28 April, the Cabaret will play every Wednesday during the same months.
