Introducing Sideshow, an interactive horror experience. We're not talking about dodgy haunted houses or uneventful ghost tours here, Sideshow aims to bring the thrill of a horror movie to life. Think heart in one's mouth thrills or having your blood run cold in terror. After a sell out season in Perth, Sideshow is coming to Sydney in November 2015.

The Sideshow storyline goes a little something like this. You are trapped in an abandoned vaudeville circus attraction. You are at the mercy of the Happy Clown and must do whatever it takes to keep him happy. The Happy Clown has turned mad with lust for the pretty knife thrower's assistant, and called on the powers of darkness to make her his. But by murdering the Ringmaster and taking over the circus the Happy Clown has brought an ancient gypsy curse down on himself and all who cross the boundaries of this dark place. Including you.....

You and your friends will face the challenge of releasing the circus from the curse.

Billed as a "thrilling and fully immersive interactive horror experience", you are both an audience member and a character in the story. If you are up for the challenge (and your nerves can handle it), get a group together for a unique and fun night out. As the story unfolds there are many twists and turns and there will be different outcomes depending on your choices.

What you need to know:

i) Audiences are limited to no more than 15 per group (groups of 12 are ideal)
ii) Strictly limited to those aged 15 and over
iii) Sideshow is set in a secret location which is only revealed when you purchase your tickets
iv) This experience is not recommended for pregnant women, phobic people or those with a nervous or heart condition
v) There is NO TALKING during the performance, unless directly engaged in conversation by an actor.

Commencing in Sydney on Friday 13th November 2015, (strange coincidence? I think not), and running over two weekends on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, Sideshow ends on Sunday 22nd November 2015.

Each show takes approximately 30 - 45 minutes, depending on the choices you make in the story and your group. You can select which timeslot you would like when you are booking your ticket. Timeslots are 7pm, 7.45pm, 8.30pm, 9.15pm, 10pm, 10.45pm.

Tickets are $43 for an adult and $34 for a concession. Group discounts are available if you buy 6 or more tickets. Tickets are strictly limited and are on sale now. Some shows have already sold out, so be quick if you don't want to miss out. To purchase show tickets click here.

Sideshow is certainly a unique, new and exciting concept in live theatre. The only question that remains is, (cue scary music), Do you dare?
