Elvira is no stranger to glamour of the stage. Actress Cassandra Peterson, who brought Elvira to life, started out as a showgirl in Las Vegas. She worked as a go-go dancer, briefly dated Elvis Presley, and used her love of horror films and monster movie hosts to create the character of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
For years, Elvira has been a part of Knott's Scary Farm, Knott's Berry Farm's annual Halloween celebration, where she has lampooned the events of the previous year and given a delightful horror-tinged stage show for the ages. YouTuber Behind the Thrills captured the show and it looks incredible. Elvira's beauty, acerbic wit, and macabre charm shine on this unforgettable stage show.
