INCOMING MESSAGE SOURCE UNKNOWN::::PLAY?
Greetings Time Traveler. The Fairy King is pleased to receive your tribute in his court for the latest installment of Mad Haus! It’s curtains for this season, so we expect you to pay tribute very enthusiastically.
What can you expect? A performance like you’ve never seen but also: Landfall, A Fairy King (but not the King you might expect), an opulent court grown wild with decadence and corruption, a dead man trying to save a shadow, musical obsession, a relentless pursuit, persistent resistance. The story has been going on for some time, but you’re a time traveler, so these details are things you can easily catch up on.
You probably have questions. “What is Mad Haus?” for example. Mad Haus is the next in a theatrical series from the minds of the The Mad Men of Oopsy Daisy Inc! Ben Hart & Brandon James, the creative team behind the Seacoasts’ recent theatrical smash hits: Avenue Q, Reefer Madness, Rocky Horror Live, Bitter Pill, Rock Of Ages, Spring Awakening, and A New Brain. It’s more than that though. Mad Haus is a story that’s both important and not important at all. It’s a party in the corpse of Vaudeville. It’s a celebration at the seams of time and space. Mad Haus is you too, if you join us inside it.

Our multi-dimensional/time travel art, song, story and dance saga continues as the Mad Haus tribe brings together Cirque, Theatre, Vaudeville, Dance, Drag, Fashion, Shadow Work, Burlesque, Live Visual Arts, Technological Innovations, Performance Art and Puppetry, to create a fully immersive sight and sound celebration. These 20+ multi-disciplined artists, experts in their respective fields, will bring you an un-ending swirl of artistic celebration spanning across too many genres to list! ‘Mad Haus’ is the artistic playground for dozens of professional artists – who come together from all over the country to flex their creative muscles on the New Hampshire seacoast in this one-night-only living, breathing, speaking, singing, dancing, performance art installation backed by our Mad Haus Band regularly featuring dozens of unique and interesting instruments.
Everyone loves an excuse to dress up in costumes and play pretend! If you are part of our dress up fun (not required). This time the theme is fairy courtesans and courtiers run through the lens of Rock, Pop and what have you, trying to get a pop culture obsessed mad fairy king to notice you, but not in a way where he kills you. Pixies would be fine. Wisps too.
The party begins promptly around 7pm in the lobby – come have a drink, or two or ten (not ten)! Partake in the costume contest around-about 7:30pm! The show shall commence in the grand gallery at the stroke of 8pm!
Mark the Bartender will be serving up his specialty potions and cocktails at the Seacoast Rep’s full bar throughout the evening, and we invite you to stay and dance on our stage once the performers have completed their floor show.
The address is 125 Bow Street. Tickets are $15 or pay what you can at the door. Can’t afford to play? Come anyway. Bring a pal! Blessed to have a little extra this week? Toss a bit more in at the door in honor of those who can’t.
Mad Haus is a production of Seacoast Rep’s Red Light Series.
