Theatre Bizarre wishes to acknowledge and give thanks to all who helped in making our Preview Gala and The Procession this year a rousing success.
Achieving our goal of The Preview Gala in its inaugural year was daunting to say the least. The night was elegant and darkly beautiful under a Hunter’s Moon. Our guests, the performances, and the fantastic music culminated into a swirl of decadence and delight none of us will soon forget.
Being our third year within the gorgeous Masonic Temple, we have begun to feel we have a home again. A place to create the playground we long for in dreams. The Procession was truly a dream come true.
None of this would be possible without the hands and support of so many: our production team and tireless crew, our amazing volunteers and Zombo’s army of minions, the unbelievable talents of the performers, musicians, and ghouls, those who fed us, the support of The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Wasserman Projects, and the Masonic Temple of Detroit. Most of all, we wish to thank you, the costumed revelers and masked believers in the bizarre. You are the life blood of us.
Until we Danse Macabre once more, Halloween is here and Zombo Lives!
The Procession is sold out and there will not be any sales at the door.
For those attending The Procession Preview Gala on October 18th Theatre Bizarre is honored. It will be our pleasure to welcome you to this inaugural celebration of the season proceeding into The Greatest Masquerade on Earth.
We hope this evening will bring you closer into the macabre spectacle we create as we roister and rollick throughout the night – a night brimming with many indulgences and surprises under a full moon.
We wish to express our appreciation for your generous support of Theatre Bizarre and the arts community in Detroit. Part of the proceeds of your Preview Gala ticket will assist us in receiving our grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, for which we truly thank you.
Dress Code Info…
We give many thanks to each and all of you who turned out in numbers to support us over the years. Your patronage is the life blood of us and we truly appreciate it.
Theatre Bizarre is more than honored to be a recipient of a Knight Foundation award for fostering the arts in Detroit. We have come far since our beloved grounds were shuttered and our stages dismantled by order of the city just a few years ago. We, who would not lie down and return to dust, are beyond grateful for the support and acknowledgement of John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Along with this award, there is a generous grant from the Knight Foundation which will give us the opportunity to purchase the tools needed to continue creating The Greatest Masquerade on Earth for all of us beyond this year. In order to utilize this gift it is imperative we are able to match the funds of the Knight Foundation grant.
As all our endeavors, ticket sales are the key that unlocks the wonder and terrifying decadence that is Theatre Bizarre. Half the amount of tickets purchased for The Procession Preview Gala will be tax deductible as a charitable donation through the Miami Foundation, Inc. and our best hope of matching these needed funds.
You, as participants in this phantasmagoric event, are not only supporting us but the arts community at large in the Detroit metro area. For this, there are no thanks large enough.
