Popsuckette Theatre is our webseries about a group of misfits who run a community theater and the crazy things they get themselves into.  Season One premiered in September 2016 and is available, right now, to watch on Youtube, for free!  Check out the first episode, why don't you!

If you saw that and loved it and want us to make more Popsuckette Theatre, we have great news for you: We're already making Season Two!

The second season of Popsuckette Theatre picks up right where the last one ended, with (SPOILER ALERT) the gang jumping head-first into an ambitious production of the cursed play Macbeth.  William is recovering from being stabbed, Victoria is missing, and Phillipe and Gustave are forced to team up and hire some new talent.

The new season has been written and the dialogue has been recorded!  Our next step is to refurbish some puppets and sets from the previous season, build new sets, puppets, and props for this season, and invest in a few pieces of equipment that will aide in getting the show done faster.  This is where you, our backers, come in!

 

In addition to some of our standard rewards, like the Original Soundtrack, Blu-rays crammed with exclusive content, and Credits in the show, we're also offering some truly one-of-a-kind rewards, like: 

Go Sock Yourself!

Send us a picture of yourself and we'll make you into a sock puppet extra that will be seen on screen in Season Two (and beyond!).  You will officially exist in the world of Popsuckette Theatre.

Lady Macbeth Play!

One of the things we have a lot of fun with when making Popsuckette Theatre is creating the play being performed in the show.  For the first season, it was "Die Mutter Rabe", an original play written by the character Gustave, and is available as a bonus full-length episode on the Popsuckette Theater Season One Blu ray!  For season two it will be "Lady Macbeth", Gustave's retelling of the classic Shakespeare play.

Featured Extra!

In addition to having a sock puppet in your likeness, you can even be in the show with lines! We will literally write you in.

Victoria's Care Package!

You will receive a package in the mail with special items from Victoria herself.  Signed head shots and a lock of her hair?  That's just the beginning!

Check out the rewards on the right and pick the best one for you!

 

Once we hit our goal of $3000 we'll reveal our 6 amazing stretch goals.  These range from equipment upgrades that will up the production value of the show to extra content for ALL BACKERS, and an awesome interactive element that could really get crazy.

 Thanks for taking the time to check out our project!  Please help us spread the word by posting this to Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, all of that stuff, and if you back our project, we will sing your praises as loud as our lungs will let us.  Now, please enjoy some more behind-the-scenes photos and video from the first season, and follow us on Instagram for ongoing shots:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Popsuckette Theatre is a wholly independent production, and with the exception of any money we raise from Kickstarter, all money and labor put into the project comes directly from us. We do Popsuckette because we love it and we want to create something awesome for everyone, but we all currently have day jobs that range industries from design and production to physical therapy to project management.

Because of this, the biggest challenge is time. We've set the goal for completing season two at the end of 2018, but delays happen and emergencies come up, so production may extend past that. With season one, we faced tons of challenges from "how do we make everything we need?" to "what's the best way to film sock puppets?" but we have a lot of experience going in to season two.

Rest assured, we will complete season two and send out all the awesome rewards - it just might take a little longer than we think. You never know!
