Gothic horror tales as portrayed by acclaimed local actors are waiting to be heard at Victorian Horrors at the Molly Brown House Museum. This year’s offerings include stories from the likes of H.G. Wells, Ambrose Bierce, and Edgar Allan Poe alongside the local spirit of Mary Coyle Chase. This isn’t the cheapest horrific event in town, but you get a ton of creepy bang for your buck.
Victorian Horrors is environmental theater set within Denver’s most historic — and some say, most haunted — Capitol Hill mansion.
Hear Gothic Horror tales as portrayed by acclaimed local actors David Payne, Julia Elstun Payne, Jim Hunt, Trina Magness, Josh Hartwell, John Wittbrodt, and Ronan Viard.
The stage for this spine-tingling event is the Molly Brown House Museum, home to Denver’s notable Titanic disaster survivor, Margaret Tobin Brown.
To heighten the spook factor, the Museum is partnering with Denver’s authentic oddities dealers, The Learned Lemur and Atomic Folk Art, to create a Victorian cabinet of curiosities for your viewing pleasure, replete with creepy taxidermy, spiny specimens, and rattling bones!
