The popular live show Mr. Moribund's Theatre of Terror will return to Milford’s Riverfront Theater for a summer screamer show with a screening of the classic 1968 Godzilla film “Destroy All Monsters” at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday, July 30 and 31. Doors open at 7 p.m.
The show took a hiatus during the 2020 pandemic when the theater closed for the year, but now that capacity restrictions have been eased, screenings can continue.
“We are all eager to get back to the show again, and I know our audience is eager to see us as well,” said W.J. Walton, show creator and performer.
The show features a screening of the film, along with live performances by the Theatre of Terror cast, live music and comedy, contests and audience participation.
UPDATE: Tickets are $5 per person. Prior capacity restrictions for the Riverfront Theater have been lifted, so all tickets are now available at the door only.
Walton recommends arriving early. "We often have an art show and other items of interest in the lobby as you come in, and you won't want to miss any of the fun,” he said.

Since 2015, Mr. Moribund's Theatre of Terror has presented a series of live shows at the Riverfront Theater. The shows are modeled after the classic horror host television programs of the 1950s through today. They feature a classic film from the golden age of monster movies along with comedy sketches, live music and talent performances, costume contests, audience participation and more.
The shows often feature additional attractions, such as a macabre art show, art vendors, face painting, etc., in the lobby and outside the venue to enjoy before the show.
