Riverboats at the Gateway Arch Announce Brand-New, Halloween-Themed Cruise
ST. LOUIS (September 10, 2019)—Something wicked this way comes! The Riverboats at the Gateway Arch announce the addition of a brand-new cruise to the 2019 fall cruise schedule: the Ghost Cruise presented by Phantasmagoria.
One of the most unique theater troupes in the country, the Victorian horror troupe Phantasmagoria is known for its blend of storytelling, dance, physical ensemble work, large-scale puppetry and stage combat. Its productions offer stories taken from centuries-old literature of horror, as well as folklore and legend, to create a theatrical flair unlike anything audience members have experienced before.
On the Ghost Cruise presented by Phantasmagoria, passengers will board the Becky Thatcher riverboat for an adventure filled with multiple tales of macabre hauntings and mesmerizing lore. The works of Edward Allen Poe, the whimsical haunting of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” local tales of terror and stories of mysterious “ghost ships” will culminate in the frightening legend of the original story of the “Ghost of the Becky Thatcher.”
The Ghost Cruise presented by Phantasmagoria is suitable for ages 13 and up.
“We are very eager to expand our cruise offerings to include a haunting way to celebrate the Halloween season,” said Mary Lamie, Executive Vice President of Multi Modal Enterprises, Bi-State Development. “Phantasmagoria is critically acclaimed for its evocative and immersive storytelling, and we can’t wait to bring passengers this delightfully spooky and unforgettable cruise this fall.”
