CoAct Productions has launched a Kickstarter to help fund their debut immersive theater production, THE SIDESHOW, a unique interactive experience where 10 audience members are mysteriously transported to a vintage 1930s circus.
This hour long performance delivers a journey in which participants will re-experience the evocative memories of an early circus performer. Audiences will encounter historical influences of the era as they inhabit a multi-sensory environment and interact with characters. Coupled with an elegant dessert and wine pairing, THE SIDESHOW will have participants indulging themselves in its dream-like atmosphere as they uncover what temptations loom beneath the veil of the big top.
Kickstarter backers can help support this unique production by purchasing a pre-sale ticket to the show or donating to receive exclusive, one-of-a-kind incentive. Funding will not only help pay for the venue, professional actors, and sophisticated desserts, but it will also help deliver the quality production elements this experience truly deserves. CoAct is counting on immersive theater fans and foodies to get behind them to help realize this vision!
