Horror Meets Magic in New Play

Posted at: 10/11/2012 8:36 AM

Fans of magic , horror and vaudeville may want to check out the new production opening at Duluth's Teatro Zuccone on Thursday.

Just in time for Halloween, "Ghost Light," is an ambition project put together by the Rengade Theater Company. And illusionist Sean Phillips teamed up with the company for this production. He stopped by Good Morning Northland Thursday to talk about his role.

"Ghost Light" is set in a spooky old vaudeville theater where a magician died under mysterious circumstances, Phillips said. Now the theater has become a tourist trap that is now one of the city's "haunted" spots.

Because of the connection with magic, Phillips said the creators asked him to help develop real illusions that are used in the play.

To check out these magic tricks and this haunting play, go see "Ghost Light" Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. until Oct. 27. For tickets and information on "Ghost Light," visit www.teatrozuccone.com
