We chatted to the Artistic Director of DK Delight Productions about ‘A Frightful Delight’ at The Abacus Arts Studio in Elephant and Castle on the 30th and 31st October.  

Could you tell me more about ‘A Frightful Delight’? It’s a pretty fun filled, spooky, scary and all around entertaining Storytelling event. We have an amazing cast, from drag queens to classical actors and a wonderful make up artist to really amp up the gore!  It is running at the Abacus Arts Studio in Elephant and Castle  on Friday 30th at 7.30pm and Saturday 31st of October at 2.30PM and 7.30pm  and we have an online show on Saturday 31st at 6.30. So you can tune in from EVERYWHERE! 

What made you want to take part? Well last December we did a Christmas story telling night called ‘The Delight Before Christmas’ and it was amazing. It was so much fun and so Christmassy and we felt that this year has been such a mess that we would love to try and have a bit of fun and cheer people up and put on a Halloween show full of funny, spooky and crazy stories and just enjoy ourselves and hopefully other people will enjoy it too! 

What do you love about Halloween? I’ve always been a fan of fancy dress and dressing up so obviously Halloween is PERFECT for me. I’ve been everything from a Zombie Nun to a Carebear and everything in between. I mean seriously whats not to love about Halloween. Ps I’m also a HUGE fan of Christmas! 

Do you have a favourite spooky story or film that gets you in the mood for Halloween? Funnily enough I’m really not a fan of Horror films so my go to Halloween movies are Hocus Pocus and the Nightmare before Christmas. I really think I have an inner 5 year old just screaming to get out! 

Why should people come along or watch online? We just want to have fun and want other people to have fun with us. This year has certainly been ‘different’ so do somthing different this Halloween and tune into ‘A Frightful Delight’.
