The Night Circus

About the Show

This show will be done very differently from any show we have done. 

I will be very hands on and have clear ideas on how I want things to go. 

Unlike most shows where I just let everyone do their own thing, this one will be more controlled.  I want it to fit the vision and imagery of the book.  I want it to honor the book as best as it can.

There will be more set designs, so if you're up to help please let me know.  I am open to input on acts, but with this one, it will ultimately come down to my decision. 

I am only asking for this much trust and control this once.  This show will be sometime in January and will also be the celebration of the studio's 4th year.

We are to not talk to anyone outside of cast about the theme of this show.  I want it to be a grand surprise to everyone attending.

All cast must have a nice outfit in one or all of these colors: black, white or gray.  You are to be in this outfit when you are not on stage.

All costumes will be only in the colors black, white or gray.

Keep in mind we are literally bringing the world of  The Night Circus to life.

If you are still interested in partaking in this special show, please let me know.  

The notes you see below are from my personal notebook, things will continue to change and evolve.
