Our Halloween Horror Cabaret will present for your enjoyment three terrifying one act plays in the style of Grand Guignol, a shockingly gory and taboo form of entertainment popular in Paris during the early 20th century, and an electrifying dance revue performed by a troupe of vampires, zombies, and werewolves! Be warned: Grand Guignol is not for the faint of heart! Brace yourself to witness torture, mutilation, dismemberment, murder, and a beauty parlor in Texas - the most horrifying brutalities conceived by man - but all in good fun! Monstrosity lurks within the heart of every man, woman, and child...in the course of an evening's entertainment, we will rout it out and display it on the stage for your delight! Come one, come all, and witness the horror that lurks within!
Act 1: "Your Friendly Wake-Up Call" by Jaimelyn Gray A closet masochist tries his very hardest to please "Mommy," and it's all fun and games until his jealous wife discovers his deception...
Act 2: "Snip! Snip!" or "Achy Breaky Hearts in a Trashcan Full of Vomit" by Helen Jaksch A girl and her hairdresser share a lot - maybe more than either of them ever imagined; this situation could get "dicey"...
Act 3: "Confession" by Jessica Lewis Jen just wants to put the past behind her and move on with Terry, the love of her life; but she discovers the hard way that some things ought to stay buried...
We will bring this nightmare to life with the help of a demented...that is, talented group of writers, directors, choreographers, designers, technicians, and performers. Our goal is to feature the work of the most exciting up-and-coming theatrical artists.
The money raised by this Kickstarter campaign will be used to cover the costs of putting on a show, namely:
- renting a performance space
- buying costumes, scenery, and props
- printing posters and programs
- promoting the show
- paying our writers, directors, choreographers, designers, technicians, and performers
- and, of course, cooking up gallons and gallons of (fake) blood!
Our fundraising goal is $800, and we figure that's the minimum it will take to resurrect Grand Guignol in style. Apart from the immense satisfaction you will receive for supporting the arts, we have created an appealing variety of reward incentives, starting with a commemorative Grand Guignol style poster at the $5 donation level (choose from 5 limited edition designs!). You can read the full list of rewards on the right!
