MR. MORIBUND'S THEATRE OF TERROR is a live stage show in the style of the classic late night horror movie hosts of the 60s and 70s, such as Dr. Shock, Svengoolie, Elvira, and Zacherley. The show happens at the Riverfront Theatre in Milford, Delaware, and is presented by Movies at Riverfront Theatre.

Each "episode" features a classic horror movie, presented by Mr. Moribund and his cast of freaks - Cadavera the Clown, Daffodil the monster, Lady Lacrimose, Mrs. Marshwater, Ruprecht the vampire, Scorpia, the Stage Mangler, and Zombellina - along with commercial breaks, musical numbers, comedy segments, and more!


It is with a heavy heart (the one that I keep in the fridge) that I tell you that there will be no Theatre of Terror shows in 2020. Second Street Players has made the very difficult decision to close the theatre for the remainder of the year - that means no stage shows, no children's theatre, and no Movies at the Riverfront (of which the Theatre of Terror is a part). This decision was made with the safety of everyone in mind.

I think I can speak for the rest of cast when I say that all of us find great joy in bringing the show to you each year, and we will greatly miss the opportunity to entertain you in 2020. I am currently lobbying for us to do an additional show or two in 2021, and discussing ideas with the cast to put some online entertainment together for this year. Rest assured, when we return to the stage next year, the shows will be SPECTACULAR. We cannot wait for you to see them!

Thank you all so much for coming to the shows, and for your support and applause. Stay tuned for updates for our upcoming projects. We love you. Please stay safe.

(Daffodil - can you put this heavy heart back in the fridge for me? It's leaking everywhere.)
