The Dunstan Creek Haunting (Aotearoa New Zealand)

Thursday 11th-Friday 12th October 2018

David Ladderman and Lizzie Tollemache present strange and eerie ghost stories from the gold rush, digging up bits of the past to thrill, chill and delight.

As travelling carnies David and Lizzie have developed an obsession with the occult, exposing and explaining the paranormal. But lately their shows have been disrupted by strange occurrences. Audience members are experiencing phenomena that can't be explained... What if we are not alone in the theatre tonight?

Based on real life accounts of early New Zealand hauntings, this spine chilling show will make you question every shadow and sleep with the lights on.
Perfect for fans of mysteries, thrillers and films such as The Conjuring, The Others and The Woman in Black.

A show to make you gasp, laugh... and scream!

"Genuinely chilling and scary" THE PRESS

"Real, immediate and all-encompassing. At times I clutch my seatmate, a woman I've never met before. She in turn grabs me, and then we laugh together. It is glorious." THEATREVIEW

WARNING: This show may contain paranormal activity and is not suitable for those with an extremely nervous disposition.

Latecomers not admitted.

Proudly presented by the Nelson Arts Festival.
