Journey for the Sun: A Scifi Cartoon Circus

Event Type
Event Description

Written by Seth Bockley and Co-directed by Frank Maugeri (from the late Redmoon Theater and Cabinet of Curiosity Events), and Lindsey Noel Whiting – with brand new Circus choreography by award winning master teacher, Sylvia Hernandez - DiStasi, original music by Kevin O'Donnell and costumes by Sully Ratke. The cast includes Kasey Foster, Jean Carlos and Human Beatbox, Yuri Lane, and members of The Actors Gymnasium Teen Ensemble. 

In 1964, the sun is overheating and The Owner of an Indiana drive-in movie theater is called upon to save earth with an unlikely bunch of heros. Will The Owner and their sidekicks be able to save the galaxy and avert a human-made environmental catastrophe?

The creative team brings to life Eddy, an enormous intergalactic robot and Poppie, a real life talking popcorn machine in this intergalatic circus adventure! Journey for the Sun features astonishing aerialists, insane acrobatics, sophisticated puppetry, in-depth object design, film and cartoon animation. 

Co-Director Frank Maugeri says, "This is going to be good old fashioned pageant fun and serious circus madness, with a rock ship of a team."
