HEAT: A Fire Cabaret

Seduction's Flash Point
Thursday-Saturday, July 16-17

Slip into a forgotten era when fire prohibition was in full effect and the frigid masses were forced underground to seek the heat. Gather in our speakeasy, where bootleg fire boils the blood and enflames the desires of all who enter. Witness the seduction of an innocent young man, unable to resist the lure of the flame.

Join us for an evening of music, dancing, and illicit fire with seductive performances from the denizens of Heat, a 1920’s era fire speakeasy. This will be a dress up affair, so start getting those jazz-age beaded dresses and spats dusted off and plan on a hot and spicy evening.

Ticket sales and more info coming soon...

Call For Performers!

We are seeking performing artists for our upcoming July production.

This year’s summer performance, Heat: A Fire Cabaret will be an immersive experience for our audience, with ambient performances throughout the facility. We are looking for performers who are excited about working in an unusual environment, and enjoy the collaborative experience of incorporating their skills with industrial artists. We are seeking performers for the stage, ambient environments and shadow dancing, so there is room for different skill and experience levels.
