G..g.g.greetings Time Traveller! It’s already time for the next installment of: Mad Haus – A Performance Portmanteau As Conceptualized By The Mad Men Of Oopsy Daisy Inc. We have missed you so.
The next in a semi-episodic theatrical series from the minds of the The Mad Men of Oopsy Daisy Inc! (Ben Hart & Brandon James, the prolific creative duo behind the Seacoasts’ recent theatrical smash hits:Avenue Q, Reefer Madness, Rocky Horror Live, Bitter Pill and Rock Of Ages!) Seacoast Rep’s RedLight Series presents:
MAD HAUS – ELECTRIC MYSTIC TRAELCADE CONTINUUM
This month’s episode revisits our merry band as the Travelcade rolls along. The road is long and we’re not quite arrived at our destination yet, so we’re continuing to explore this path as best we can. We continue with our merry band of vagabonds along the dusty trails as tribe brings together Cirque, Theatre, Vaudeville, Dance, Drag, Fashion, Burlesque, Live Visual Arts, Technological Innovations, Performance Art and Puppets, to create a fully immersive sight and sound smorgasbord!
Not sure what Mad Haus is? Each night is its own unfolding based around a theme, and at the end of each performance the show disappears forever, never to take stage again in the same form. You may recognize some recurring characters, a few themes, but you’ll never see even close to the same show twice. That’s why it’s always the perfect time to jump in and join the tribe.
These 20+ multi-disciplined artists, experts in their perspective fields, will bring you an un-ending swirl of artistic celebration spanning across too many genres to list in a night of mayhem curated by the award-winning Mad Men of Oopsie Daisy Inc. This evening will be backed by the live indie-folk-rock Mad Haus band joined by musicians playing dozens of other unique and interesting instruments. This month features original music, poetry, and dance by many members of our troupe.
Come in costume if you like! Everyone loves an excuse to dress up in costumes and play pretend we are someone else. Our guests are encouraged to come in costume or creative attire. This time, you are joining the ongoing travelcade, so make sure you look the part if dressing is your forte. Same theme as last time – Vagabond, mystic, nomad, time traveller, fortune telling, tarot reading, psychic girl chic. You’ve been on the road a while now. Get Creative, get weird, get wacky, come ready to play!
The party begins promptly around 7pm in the lobby – come have a drink, or two or ten. Partake in the costume contest at 7:30pm. The show shall commence in the grand gallery at the stroke of 8pm!
Mark the Bartender will be serving up his specialty potions and cocktails at the Seacoast Rep’s full bar throughout the evening, and we invite you to stay and dance in our haunted theatre once the performers have completed their floor show.
The address is 125 Bow Street.
As always, tickets are $15 or pay what you can at the door. (Can’t afford to play? Come anyway. Bring a pal! Blessed to have a little extra this week? Toss a bit more in at the door in honor of those who can’t.) We invite you to come enjoy yourself and the other weirdos in our community. Try something different!
Gifts and treats in a swag bag for the best dressed and most festive!
Probably not suitable for the more sensitive among us or young children. There may or may not be some blood and some nudity (and far, far too much fun!)
Mad Haus is a production of Seacoast Rep’s Red Light Series
