Charles Arlington (AKA Charles Peters) invites you to steady your nerves and prepare your mind for this immersive experience as he contacts the other side. This theatrical presentation harks back to the Victorian era when the séance phenomenon captivated every level of society.
Your journey begins in a very intimate theater located in the heart of historic and haunted Old Town, mere steps from the famous Whaley House.
Each experience takes you further into the ethereal realm. Through storytelling and practical demonstrations magician Charles Arlington guides you further into the beyond. Your perceptions will be challenged with psychic demonstrations and experiments in telekinesis. As the night progresses spirits will make their presence known. And at the end of the journey all the lights will be extinguished for the dark séance to make final contact.
This show is not for the faint-hearted and not recommended for children under 13 years old. Guests with heart conditions, claustrophobia or a fear of the dark should not attend.
Last year all of our shows sold out early.
