Join The Villains Theatre for our newest Halloween offering… MADSUMMER: a staged reading 80s sci-fi karaoke musical by Dan Bray!


After getting lost in the forest, lovers Ramona and Seymour find themselves in the House of Dr Dream: a deranged sleep scientist who believes that the best hits of the ’80s can be used to usher forth the Greek Gods and – perhaps – even the end of the world.

Inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream – not to mention Rocky Horror Picture Show (and yes, perhaps, just a tiiiiny dash of Mamma Mia!) – this radical, new, balls-to-the-wall staged reading is the perfect way to kick off the Halloween Season – not to mention, honour the best band of the 1980s… Tears for Fears (“Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, “Mad Summer”)!

Stick around after the performance for a open KARAOKE DANCE PARTY!

“We are such stuff as screams are made of, and our little lives are rounded with a sleep!”

The Villains Theatre is grateful to work and create art in Kjipuktuk, Mi’kma’ki: the ancestral, unceded, and unsurrendered land of the Mi’kmaq people.
