THE SHOW:

In a spooky graveyard, the darkly lovely Claudia, a Guardian of Dark Tales, retells famous horror stories much to the delight of her lumpy husband, Igor. As she tells classics such as "Dracula", "Frankenstein", "The Three Werewolves", "Jekyll and Hyde", "The Tragic Tale of the Mummy", and "The Three Witches", the characters come to life. However, the stories are all a bit different than we expect. In fact, instead of being terrifying, they are actually quite humorous. Characters behave in unexpected ways, accidents occur, but all turns out well. Claudia's tales are far more funny than scary, and all is resolved into a neat, happy ending.
