Victorian Tales of Terror


Tours are from 7 to 9pm Thursday, October 13 – Sunday, October 16. Space is limited so book your tickets as soon as possible!

Part outdoor theater, part walking tour, part Halloween haunted event. The Victorian Tales of Terror is a theatrical experience that takes place on the streets of Old Louisville.
This year we focus on the Southern Exposition of 1883, and the nefarious deeds of the horrible Dr. Arthur Scarlett, a serial killer that used the Exposition as his hunting grounds.

You’ll meet his victims, his cohorts (evil clowns, wicked children), the Harvest Queen, Thomas Edison, and in a final confrontation meet the Doctor himself.

The tour is conducted by the Society of the Unseen Hand a fictitious paranormal investigation group, founded in Louisville in the late 1800’s. The guides play actual members of the society, Physical Mediums that can manifest the spirits of the past.

The tours start in the Historic Old Louisville Visitors Center (1340 S. 4th Street) in Central Park and go through the neighborhood, including Belgravia Court and St. James Court.

The actors are all local volunteers, including the Louisville Gilbert and Sullivan Society. This year’s production has been written by Chazz Petersen and Daniel Gatlin, and directed by Chazz Petersen.
The tours leave every ten minutes from the Visitors Center starting at 7:00 p.m with the last tour leaving at 9:00 p.m., the shows last about one hour. The dates are Thursday the 13th of October through Sunday the 16th.
Tickets are $20.00 in advance; $25.00 night of the show at the Historic Old Louisville Visitors Center.
