At the heart of the Decrepit Forest, the sound of crazy laughter can often be heard breaking through the croaking of frogs and the shrieks of crows. This laugh belongs to Jizèle, a bitter, angry, sinister—and perhaps even sad— witch whose favourite pastime is capturing magicians who try to strip HER forest of its precious ingredients.
Ali Abdou, who we came to know through previous adventures, is still looking for his master and friend, the Great Salazar. Trapped in the Decrepit Forest, Ali hears the echoing laughter of the evil Jizèle. Meeting Jizèle helps Ali track down his master… but things can get a little complicated in Jizèle’s dark world, especially when she falls head over heels in love with you!
A tale where theatre, puppets and fantasy come together to take 5 to 12 year olds on a roller coaster of emotions— simply unforgettable!

Not so long ago, Cro-Magnon man roamed the Earth, living in caves. One fateful day, a strange missionary arrived and unknowingly spread a form of bacteria that made them all go completely insane. The women and children attempted to save themselves by hiding but, alas, only three people were left unaffected. Can you help these poor souls by getting them out of the cave unharmed?
*We are currently seeking for young volunteers between the ages of 12 and 17 to help us build and participate as a volunteer in the Haunted House.*
