Carnival of Souls



New Zealand’s leading musical madman

Carnival of Souls begins with the vivacious Mary Henry improbably surviving a car wreck. She moves to a small town in Utah to begin a new job as a church organist, but then the nightmare begins…

What better way to experience Herk Harvey’s stunning black and white horror classic Carnival of Souls than with an entirely new live soundtrack and an original score from New Zealand’s leading musical madman Leon Radojkovic.

A brilliant cast breathes new life into the original 1962 characters while a sole foley artist recreates every scary sound effect live on stage.

This is an unforgettable and multi-dimensional production that pumps new blood into old zombies and the 1960s horrors of middle America.
