Before going into the details, let me get straight to it.
We’re having an impromptu fundraiser at The Theatre at St. Claude on Monday the 23rd. And we need your help.
About a month ago, a transponder went down and knocked the power out at The Theatre at St. Claude. When it came back on, the surge essentially fried the dimmer packs and made it impossible to do anything short of basic, minimal lighting design for the stage.
It’s going to require both some work on the breaker box and the purchase of new dimmer packs to make the whole thing work.
Furthermore, after a lot of capital injections by Broken Habit Productions, the theatre is still in need of more upgrades to make it not only a fully functional space but also one that can continue to charge reasonable rates.
If you want to know how you can help, you can start by coming Monday and sharing both a laugh and a scare with us.
Here’s the official announcement.
WHAT: The Bone Isle: A Sinister Fundraiser on St. Claude
WHEN: Monday, May 23rd from 7 PM to 10 PM
WHERE: The Theatre at St. Claude, 2240 St. Claude Avenue (just behind The Allways Lounge)
INFO: Minimum $10, for more information call (504) 638-6326
Help us turn on the lights by plunging our stage into the dark.
The Theatre at St. Claude needs help with both lighting and electrical repairs to keep up with our program of new work in theatre, burlesque and music, and we are willing to scare you into giving assistance.
The cast of last year’s Big Easy nominated “Dracula” returns with some new conspirators to offer something every bit as spookily fun and joyfully unsettling.
“The Bone Isle” is a collection of one-acts and monologues by playwright Jim Fitzmorris that includes two former finalists of Actors’ Theatre of Louisville’s 10-Minute Play Contest.
An under siege graveyard shift grocery store protected only by an omnipresent admiral on its intercom, a mysterious figure named Jack who can’t extinguish the flame in his head, a baby sitter on a dark a stormy night who discovers that her young charge might not be who he seems, and a radical terrorist organization dedicated to the sanctity of Mickey Mouse.
These and a few other dark surprises are part of the fateful trip down “The Bone Isle.” It’s an adventure that includes the talents of Joel Derby, Kimberly Kaye, Bunny Love, Matthew Mickal, Jim Fitzmorris, Trey Lagan, Maggie Corbett, Jen Pagan, and is hosted by radio personality Clare Marie of The Dave Nemo Show.
We’re asking a minimum donation of $10, but we are hoping you can give more. Doors open at 7, show begins at 8, and we’ll be serving some spooky snacks after that.
