“The Dummy’s AtTiC”, an interactive musical with Cirque which grabs you rapidly into the attic of an abandoned old theatre with a ventriloquist dummy, who only comes to life every Hallows eve as he summons his performers from the year 1897. Once gathered in the attic, they reenact their Vaudeville performances from years ago, with a twist. But what happens when a young teenager, who is ALIVE, stumbles upon the abandoned theater, with his own ventriloquist dummy?
The production, an out of the box concept with astonishing visuals, interactive, is a family entertainment spectacular with playful spirits and a no-gore approach to Halloween with messages about community, acceptance, and love with heart-stopping unimaginable feats. Featured will be world champions Sports Acro, Team USA martial artists, National champions, teen ventriloquist (Broadway’s Shane Selloria), contortionist bent in half in 19” glass box, LED optical illusion aerial apparatus, twins in unexplained aerial acts, a girl spinning with her back on her head and held up only by her mouth, a BLINDFOLDED foot archer, voice-overs by “The Lake” star Declan Whaley.
