Turn On The Red Light
Red Light is back and more electrifying than ever!
The Red Light Series is under new curation by The Mad Men Of Oopsy Daisy Inc!, Ben Hart & Brandon James, the prolific creative duo behind the Seacoasts’ recent smash hits: Avenue Q, Reefer Madness and Bitter Pill. The Rep’s Red Light Series kicks off 2017 with its first in an episodic series of a new sort of theatrical happening: “MAD HAUS! (A Performance Portmanteau As Conceptualized By The Mad Men Of Oopsy Daisy Inc!”)
More than an event, this is an experience!
In 2017 The Red Light Series, The Rep’s adult alternative programming, will bring together Cirque, Theatre, Vaudeville, Dance, Drag, Fashion, Burlesque, Live Visual Arts, Technological Innovations and Puppets, to create a fully immersive sight and sound smorgasbord! This tribe of multi-disciplined artists, experts in their perspective fields, will bring you an un-ending swirl of artistic celebration spanning across too many genres to list!

MAD HAUS – WITCH-CON 2017!!
VALENTINES DAY, TUESDAY FEBRUARY 14TH AT 7:30PM!
There is a contamination outbreak of “The Weirdness” at this year’s Witch-Con, to be held in a haunted hotel in an anomaly bubble parked just outside of time and space. Witches and warlocks shall descend from all corners of existence to compete in this years Witch-Con games for the title of “Head high most awesome supreme best witch, EVER!” Who will catch “The Weirdness?!” Who shall take home the Witch-Con Games Trophy?! Spend your Valentines evening with us and find out!!
As usual Our mad artists will be showcasing their many talents through an unfolding of cirque, burlesque, fashion, live visual arts, sci-fi story telling, theatre, puppets, dance, performance art – a creativity explosion unlike anything you have ever witnessed!
Our guests are encouraged to come in costume or creative attire. This time, let’s call it: Contaminated and quarantined witches, wizards, warlocks and wow! Come as if you are to walk the red carpet of Witch-Con under threat of contamination and contagion! Dress to impress your fellow witches and warlocks in Sci-Fi, time Traveler, quarantined witch-chic, which roughly translates to “whatever the hell you want” Get outrageous, there are no rules here. Show your true colors. Come be you. Come be not you. Be what you’d like.
It’s Valentines day, so snuggle up with your sweetheart for some after-dinner, alternative styled celebrations, or, for the more black of hearted “down with love” types, come with a gaggle of your favorite singles for an evening of sisterhood and debaucherous revelry!
Mark the Bartender will be serving up his specialty potions brews and cocktails at the Seacoast Rep’s full bar throughout the evening, and we invite you to stay and dance in our haunted theatre 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.) We invite you to come enjoy yourself and the other weirdos in our community. Try something different!
The Lobby (and the bar!) opens at 6:30PM– we will be featuring a pop-up shop before the show, local artists from the community will be selling and trading their one-of-a-kind artworks, witchy memorabilia, vintage clothing, and rare/funky antiques before the doors of the theatre open at 7PM for a 7:30pm showtime.
Gifts and treats in a swag bag for the best dressed and most festive. (For real this time!)
Probably not suitable for the more sensitive among us. There may or may not be some blood and some nudity (and far, far too much fun!)
Mad Haus is a production of Seacoast Rep’s Red Light Series
