Hello, kittens. Game for another night of fright, are you?
Back for two nights of gory good fun, the fourth annual Dead Centre of Town grips the heart of old downtown by celebrating one of Edmonton’s finest, oldest theatre venues, the New City Compound. Read what the press is saying:
BEWARE: Dead Centre of Town ain’t for the faint of heart. Performances contain extreme violence, ghastly gore and unsettling themes, and are intended for an 18+ audience only.

Dead Centre of Town is an annual interactive Halloween experience that digs up and dances with the dusty bones of the sadly forgotten history of Edmonton. Based on the interesting and sometimes sordid history of our fair city, Dead Centre of Town has taken place in locations like The Globe Bar and Tap House (2007), which was once a mortuary, The ARTery (2008) which lives on the only complete and unaltered pre-World War One streetscape in Edmonton, and The Iron Horse, which was the first train station on the south side of the river (2009).
