Someone is sick. Everyone is stuck. No one is safe.
In this comedic horror show, The Lazaretto sets out to explore the three P’s of our current society: People, Plagues and Paranoia. Join us for a fright, or a laugh, or both!

This show contains strong language, fake blood, mentions of sickness and death, a gunshot sound effect, staged violence, and horror elements… many horror elements.

Virtual Lobby

In advance of the performance, we'd like to invite you to visit our Virtual Lobby to learn more about the production and our team.
