Goblins, ghouls or ghosts could haunt the hallways of the town mansion.
Citizens can’t agree on the best way to deal with the spooky home. But since ‘the incident,’ residents have been edgy. Now a town hall meeting has been called to deal with the problem.
Should it be torn down? Could the town use cheap zombie labour to accomplish their task? Or do they need to take other measures?
It’s the spooky premise of Nanaimo’s Naughty and Spice Burlesque Troupe’s upcoming show Mansion in the Woods.
“We are making fun of those creepy old haunted mansions and houses in the woods,” said troupe member Goldie Luxe. “It is a Halloween show, but it’s pretty much more fun than scary. This is much more comedic.”
She said this show is a little different than other performances because one story weaves its way throughout all the sets. It features seven troupe members and live singing by the troupe’s vocalist, Vixen Van Gogo.
“She’s an amazing singer,” said Luxe.
This is Naughty and Spice’s first show in Nanaimo in about a year. The troupe has been busy performing shows up Island. Luxe said people will notice a change from previous shows.
“We have really been working on upping our game,” Luxe said. “It’s going to be fun.
The show is Friday (Oct. 23) at the Harbour City Theatre. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. VIP seating spots cost $25 and must be reserved by going to www.naughtyandspiceburlesque.com. People who purchase the VIP seating will also receive a bag of goodies from the troupe.
