MANSION follows the tale of the newly widowed Mel Walker and her children, who seek refuge in an old Mansion hoping for new beginnings. But little do they know, they’re about to dance with seductive spirits and demonic desires. Horror has never looked so sexy, and burlesque has never looked more gruesome. Each act unfolds a chapter of lust, temptation, and pure unadulterated horror.
Before MANSION‘s eerie allure ensnares you, delve into its roots with WITCH—a $35, 30-minute add-on performance staged before the Walker family move in. Encounter the mansion’s prior residents through spellbinding burlesque, circus, and dance. Clad in luxury and concealing dark secrets, three mysterious women pose a haunting question: monsters, victims, or mirrors of us? Discover their stories in this exclusive prelude. After all, it is the season of the WITCH.
