Ecstatic Theatrics has begun the work of turning the field in front of TekVenture into a theatrical fantasy science nature park with a maze, story tours, quest challenges, and a wide concert and event flat.
The goal is to earn money for improvements to the building.
We need volunteers to brainstorm, work and act, and people willing to buy an affordable ticket to enjoy it
Please check out Twistful Meadow Designs if you want to help.

A weird and fun time was had at the
Holiday Happenings and Krampus VS Santa Battle Op
Dec. 14, 2019 at TekVenture
Charlotte Glaze, 13, won a game of Hnefatafl, an ancient Irish, Norse, English game, against Krampus, an ancient Norse nemesis of Santa. Charlotte had the advantage of real fingers and being on her school's chess team.
The veterans band The Annex jammed with Santa (Evan Snaufer), The Mayor of Maker Town (Hunter Evans), and Krampus (Dylan Senff) whose claws cause him to shred instruments so he joined the audience instead.
Dylan played Snape in our Harry Potter parody in 2017 and Evan played Lucky the Leprechaun in 2018. Both have done lots of professional quality theater work at other theaters. Hunter is a theater junior at PFW.

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.
In 2017 I discovered an unused stage at TekVenture's new location in the old River City nightclub. I cleaned it up, installed a curtain & pulley system, lighting, scenery and stairs up to the stage. Their workshops in wood, metal, welding, electricity and sewing are perfect for a live theater. In October 2017 we performed "Harry Potter and the Obnoxious Voice" with new scenes for a Bellatrix subplot, and have continued performing there since. See details at HISTORY.
