Our show needs money in order to have fully-realized designs with high production value. Some highlights of the designs include the following:

  • Set: A 48' by 16' wall built from scrap wood, old pipes, and junkyard pieces, and an old theater box seat built from scratch
  • Lights: unique lighting that imitates an old theater, a hazer, and a working vintage chandelier
  • Costumes: multiple costumes for each of the 13 cast members, whose clothes become more luxurious and opulent over the course of the show
  • Sound: a full experimental soundtrack and custom-designed sound effects to contribute to the eerie world of the town

You could help it happen!
