The Masque of the Red Death

Winner of the 2017 SPF !Boo Festival

Adapted from the short story by Edgar Allan Poe, this devised movement piece, staged and choreographed by Ann Cooley relates the tale of Prince Prospero, who locks himself and his nobles away in a castle while a plague, the Red Death, ravages his country, decimating the poorer population.

With an original musical composition by Robert Pompa, this production terrified audiences at the 2017 !Boo Festival. With costumes by Susan Rosello, lighting by Shannon Kavanagh, and narration by Dante Jayce, audiences were transported to a distant land where even the sly Prince Prospero was unable to escape the bloody clutches of the Red Death 

Performances: October 19-22 2017
