Past Shows of Ecstatic Theatrics
Past shows of The Firehouse Theater
Before starting Ecstatic Theatrics, I ran the Firehouse Theater in Fort Wayne for 3.5 years, producing 78 shows/305 performances, until closing Feb. 2010. Since then I produced "Don't Look in the Lake" at Fright Night 2011, "The New Wizard of Oz Musical" at the University of St. Francis and the Main Library auditorium, "Harry Potter and the Obnoxious Voice ~ the sssPOOF!" at Franke Park, and a Christmas show at the Main Library in 2012.
In 2013, I did "Slipperzzzz! Cobb and the 12 Dancing Princesses" at Cinema Center.
In 2014, I produced three plays at the Red Barn Theater in Tucson, AZ: "The New Musical Wizard of Oz", "You Don't Bring Me Flowers Anymore" and workshopped a new science fiction script.

OUR LATEST FORT WAYNE SHOW:
"Slipperzzzzzzzzz! ~ Cobb and the 12 Dancing Princesses"
a comedy action musical by Jeannette Jaquish.
Music by Kevin MacLeod, Tchiakovsky, and Camille Saint-Saens
A starry-eyed cobbler escapes his big-toothed small town girls to search for a princess,
rescues a forest witch from bandits and learns of 12 princesses who mysteriously disappear every night,
wearing their shoes to tatters.
Becoming the castle shoemaker, he follows the wily princesses to their
enchanting, dangerous rendezvous.
at Cinema Center, 437 E. Berry
Tickets were: $6.
Instead of observing the sneaky princesses who wear out their dance slippers nightly, Prince Haagen (Brandon Johnson) is distracted by the wiles of Princess Jonquil (Chloe Cameron) while two of her sisters (Paige Trammel and Anna Boeglin) pour sleeping potion into his drink as other sisters (L to R) Autumn Byers, Katie Trammel, Elaina Blacketor and Carolann Byers laugh in anticipation of a night of dancing.
