The Saints & Poets Production Company (The Rocky Horror Puppet Show, The Pillowman) is taking the leap into producing original theatre in Burlington, Vermont.  The Moreau Horrors is a NEW musical comedy based on H.G. Wells' 1896 science fiction classic The Island of Doctor Moreau. Written and directed by Burlington artist Seth Jarvis, The Moreau Horrors will combine live actors and musicians, puppetry, video and songs by Adam Cooper Wood and Nathan Jarvis. This irreverent adaptation re-imagines Wells' novel through a lens of classic Pre-Code horror films and Roger Corman schlock. 

The budget for this production is over $10,000 and we are asking you to help us raise $5,000 to defray the costs of sets, costumes, the performance space and lighting.  We believe there is great support in our community for creating original theatre.  Please help us bring audiences a rich and entertaining experience.  And puppets...the world needs more puppets.  Thank you.

Risks and challenges

The Moreau Horrors is already well underway! We have a great script, an outstanding cast, a top notch production team and a proven track record of producing great theatre. Of course theatre is always a risk. Traditionally we have relied on ticket sales to cover most of the cost of our productions and while we believe the box office will be strong for The Moreau Horrors, original productions don't have the name recognition that helps to drive ticket sales. Your support will help us take this creative risk with confidence.
