The Canterville Ghost is gloriously ghoulish and uproarious vaudeville spectacular from award-winning theatre company Tall Stories. Tall Stories are a charity, specialising in shows aimed at children and families, which has become internationally recognised for its exciting blend of unique storytelling theatre and music.

Oscar Wilde’s humorous short story follows the thoroughly modern Otis family, who move into the former residence of Sir Simon de Canterville, who disappeared mysteriously 300 years ago – after having been accused of murder.


The family have been warned about the fearsome phantom that haunts the Hall. But has anyone warned the Canterville Ghost about them?

Interspersed with their own sensational acts, a comedian, a magician, a psychic and their charismatic compere will tell this spine-chilling story for audiences delight and delectation.

‘Quite simply a delight’ ★★★★★ The 730 Review
