A one-of-a-kind musical/horror/comedy Halloween event, Ruddigore, adapted and updated from the classic Gilbert and Sullivan supernatural operetta, to feature modern horror characters and situations, tells the twisted tale of Ruthven Murgatroyd, who masquerades as a zombie, to avoid a heinous family curse.
