Enter a world of mystery and elegance at Seattle’s exclusive masks-required New Year’s party. Copious Love presents the second annual Midnight Masquerade NYE, mixing our dark theatrics into a modern ball with DJs Jeremy, Onesies and TonyG curating a dance party under the giant chandelier.

VIP ticket level has you on the guest list with complimentary coat check, bottomless sparkling wine, and access to our VIP Lounge overlooking the party – complete with exclusive bottle service. The Masquerade opens its doors only to guests in mask, so plan your attire accordingly. We’re upping the ante with better champagne, more entertainment, and surprises galore!

You will be greeted at the door and escorted inside, where celebration awaits with you. Grab your friends for swank photo opportunities and one of the classiest parties in Pioneer Square as we count toward 2018 in style.

Proceeds benefit Copious Love Productions 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. (21+)


Rules for a Masquerade

1. Mask Required
A masquerade ball means that we have a strict mask-required policy at this event. Your admission comes complete with a basic mask if you don’t have one, but we thoroughly recommend preparing your mask in advance. Now is the time to get crazy on pinterest designing the perfect mask for your outfit.

2. Costume or Formal Attire encouraged
This is going to be an expo of strange, so run with it. In classical victorian masquerade parties, ladies and gentlemen wore their finest formal dress. At Copious Love’s party, anything goes. We want to see you get creative and go crazy. Photos will be taken!

3. Party like no one knows who you are
Now that you’ve got 1. and 2. set, you’re ready to have one of the best New Year’s Eve parties of your ever-loving life. Join Copious Love as we present this fantasy macabre ball under the “mega-chandelier” and throw all of your 2016 grief to the past as we party toward the future.


Leading up to Midnight

8:00 Doors Open 
8:00 DJ Jeremy
9:30 DJ Onesies
11:00 DJ TonyG
12:00 MIDNIGHT!!!

Party don’t stop…


Getting to the party

VENUE — Flutter Studios  map website
Nestled in Seattle’s original party neighborhood, Flutter Studios holds up the gold standard for Pioneer Square art spaces. Original brick walls and an upstairs loft we are converting into the VIP Lounge at the party. Around the corner from everything Seattle has to offer. The building has an exclusive dark entrance, so don’t miss it – look for the Masquerade host at the door!

RIDESHARE  This is a champagne party. You shouldn’t drive. We highly recommend Uber and Lyft or taxis, especially when you go VIP. We don’t want you behind the wheel after partying so hard with us, so download the app on your phone and use it to get to and from the event. If you’re new to Lyft, use the code: COPIOUSNYE for a discount!

PARKING — If you absolutely have to drive, we’re in Pioneer Square and street parking will suck. PRO TIP: If you do find a spot on the street it’s only metered until 8pm, after which you don’t have to pay. The SP+ parking lot at 721 1st Ave is just around the corner. Located at 1st and Columbia, there are about 13 stories of parking spots. I’m sure you’ll find one. For cheap parking, try Laz Parking just another block up – 1198 1st Ave.


Make an evening of it

PIONEER SQUARE is one of Seattle’s best nightlife neighborhoods, hosting some of the best restaurants, bars, and clubs that our city has to offer. Vibrant and continuously bustling, this is a great spot to make a complete night out of it. Most amazing spots are within walking distance of Flutter Studios. This gives you a chance to take in the oldest neighborhood in Seattle, and purportedly one of the most haunted! Check out one of the Pioneer Square Underground or Ghost Tours, if you can muster it!

DINING NEARBY

Il Terrazzo Carmine – Upscale institution for Italian fine dining with an extensive wine list in an airy & refined space.

Damn the Weather – Upscale gastropub offering craft cocktails & a changing menu of American fare in wood-&-brick digs.

Casco Antiguo – Brick-walled space for Mexican classics prepared by hand, plus margaritas on tap.

We sold out quickly last year, and we have only 130 tickets this year.

#CLPsuggests “Downstairs”


1 Comment

 Downstairs
by Theresa Rebeck
Directed by Julie Beckman
June 16th ~ July 9th
Presented In The Bullitt Cabaret at ACT
700 Union Street
TICKETS HERE 

Downstairs by prolific author Theresa Rebeck is a world premier, thought-provoking family drama presented by Theater 22 in conjunction with ACT’s new play festival Construction Zone.

Downstairs follows the relationship of estranged siblings Irene and Teddy. Teddy has recently taken up temporary lodging in Irene’s basement and is unwelcome by her oppressive husband Gerry.

Attempting to patch over the open wounds of Irene’s marriage, the siblings search for common experiences in their pasts- memories of their mother, favorite foods and the love they shared as children. These attempts to connect produce some of the most endearing moments in the show.

Brandon Ryan is unerringly genuine and heart-stoppingly engaging as Teddy, the wayward younger sibling living in his sister’s basement. He seems to be constantly ready to bolt and the amount of energy he exudes on stage is electric in the audience. We didn’t know whether to be afraid, sympathetic or to egg him on. He effectively held us emotionally hostage throughout the entire show and never once did he falter.

Christine Marie Brown portrays abused wife Irene with a quiet dignity at times and at others, she wheedles, goes above and beyond, mollycoddles and leans in just to hear one positive affirmation from her brother. She has long since learned that it will not come from her marriage. Brown is earnest and honest and her presence on stage was both reassuring and heartbreaking.

John Q. Smith is brutal in his attack on this role. Gerry’s first moment on stage is quiet and dangerous. I felt my panic rise as he stood on the stairs, simply watching and waiting for Teddy to notice him. It was like watching a predator stalk his prey. Simply by standing there, on the stairs, overlooking his domain, I was filled with terror. It is rare for an actor to enthrall and terrorize just by quietly standing, and he clasps this precious position of power steadily throughout the show. Gerry is an overbearing, abusive control freak intent on keeping the status quo- where he is the only one making any decisions – ie withholding job opportunities from Irene under the guise of being “traditional.” Teddy’s presence in Gerry’s house (which actually belongs to Irene) upsets the power balance and that is simply unacceptable.

Director Julie Beckman brilliantly culls together terror and humor and makes the best of a script that can be dark and overwhelming. She relies heavily on Rebeck’s excellent script and the integrity of her actors to keep the dark emotional show watchable and engaging. Her interpretation of the arcs and beats streamed smoothly together.

And shout out to stage designer Robin Macartney for one of the most excellent sets I have seen in a while. The half unfinished basement full of old odds and ends, blankets, a forgotten floral couch, shop sink, electrical conduits and a shop bathroom squeezed gingerly into such a small space is the perfect blend of realistic utilitarian and metaphorical oppression. Lacy and I had to see it up close after the show and took our time pointing out the details like total fan girls.

In a world that can rely heavily on flash and sparkle, T22 is unafraid of tackling complex material and presenting humanizing stories. We are truly lucky to have them amongst our artistic community.

*Be advised that some material in Theresa Rebeck’s Downstairs can be triggering and may potentially distress audience members.

#CLPsuggests “Into the Deeps”


No Comments

DangerSwitch gives clownfish a whole new meaning in their newest production “Into the Deeps”.

This production has it all; comedy, heart, beauty, and bravery. It leads with some stunning imagery which makes you excited for what’s in store and the remaining 90 minutes do not disappoint. “Into the Deeps” is gracefully directed by Alyza DelPan-Monley an Eddie DeHais. The ensemble play amazingly off of each other and portray such awesome emotion with only sound and movement. The Sound Design by D.R Amromin is incredible, it is a much part of the story as the performers onstage. Every piece of this show came together to make a thing of beauty.

“Into the Deeps” has a short run so buy your tickets now!! Please support DangerSwitch so they can continue making their art which is so integral to the Seattle artistic community. I love them so much.

THE STORY-

A quick note from our beloved Playwright and Director, Brendan Mack: “It is important to note that in the ever changing world we live in, the one unchanging constant is that people love theatrical fog. No matter how bad your day is, or what life events may be pushing you around and making you feel trapped – oh so trapped, so unbearably trapped – you know that would all change if you were given the opportunity to run through a room full of theatrical fog. We are changing people’s lives. And by people we mean you. And by lives, we mean fog. And by you, we mean machine.” While this show may not give you that exact opportunity, it will be close!

On the surface, The Fog Machine Play is a series of short plays, each strung together by the use of a fog machine that was purchased for a production in 2013 but was never actually used. Never given the chance to live up to it’s full potential. We had to give it it’s time in the spotlight. While The Fog Machine Play explores the various uses of theatrical fog, it also explores what it is like to produce fringe theatre in this day and age. It toys with what can (or cannot) happen during a live show and how an ensemble rises to the occasion when faced with the challenges of live theatre. Part sincere and part absurd, this show will truly be an “unfogettable” once in a lifetime experience.

Join Copious Love Productions for our twelfth full-length production. The Fog Machine Play was created by Seattle Drag Artist and STAGEright Artistic Director Brendan Mack and developed into reality with the help of Copious Love’s monthly Writing Group, Artistic Director Chelsea Madsen and Associate Artistic Director Rachel Tyrrel.

Presented by Annex Theatre
Written by Amy Escobar
Directed by Eddie DeHais
Annex Theatre
February 10th-March 4th
TICKETS HERE

One night, Mary (Corinne Magin), vouches out of a jazz aerobics class, accidentally drops a needle through cracks in the floor and awakens The Slither. She has two choices, be devoured by the Slither to terminate its hunger or complete 9 nightmarish tasks to silence the beast.

Through dangers untold meeting creatures akin to that of your creepiest dreams, Mary journeys through nightmare after nightmare. With the help of her best friend Nell, (Kiki Abba), her cat Alabaster (Carter Rodriquez), and Simper (Kai Curtis) the cutest demon you will ever meet, Mary trudges onward to conquer her own darkness and defeat The Slither.

Scary Mary and the Nightmares Nine is written by the phenomenal Amy Escobar, and put to
life by the incredible Eddie DeHais. DeHais also designed a set that you will want to live in, provided you have an admiration toward the strange and unusual, or libraries.

Scary Mary and the Nightmares Nine is one of those rare instances in theatre where a stellar cast coupled with a wonderful design team brings Mary’s nightmare world not only to life but also into reality.

Scary Mary runs February 10th through March 4th, 7:30 p.m. at Annex Theater.

Our NEW Musical Announcement!


No Comments

UnknownMusical-FB_cover
Have you been following our search for a new musical?!

If so, you know that we have been searching for a new musical to produce for quite a while! We put out a call for new musicals awhile back and we were inundated with quite a few choices. We read through them, weighed every choice and came to a decision as a team. Our vision was clear. We have our script, we are working with our playwright and assembling a team as we speak! Fast forward to last night at our annual fundraiser…
We finally announced our choice! Now you can revel in our decision and get excited for our developments in the new year!

journeywestIn the spring of 2018 we will produce Journey West: The Legend of Lewis & Clark, Based on Mostly “True” Events by Andrew Lee Creech!

Here is a bit about the show from the playwright himself;
Journey West: The Legend of Lewis & Clark, Based on Mostly “True” Events
“In the times in which we are living–proposed walls, alternative facts, xenophobia, congressional shenanigans and a country divided, it seems more and more like we are living in a farcical cartoon as many of us find ourselves asking: Is this even real? Questions like this led even further down the research rabbit hole, and it became clear that this American origin story needed to be retold to help unpack our current political and social state and to create inclusive art for all.

This story asks us to wrestle with two hard truths. One, the history of white imperialism dates back to even our country’s most prideful moments. And many our “success” stories come at the expense of others. And two, the success of this mission relied on not just the headliners, but many other supporting players as well. These are our Hidden Figures. This then begs the question: What does history look like when it is written by the disenfranchised and the forgotten? This is where things get very exciting. Much like the headlines we are seeing every day, the Corps of Discovery’s story is absurd, wacky, heartbreaking at times, amazing, and unbelievable. But no matter how far the hijinks go, every character’s humanity is always rooted in their pursuit of acceptance, respect, a sense of self-worth, and wanderlust.
This is an American story. This is a Human story.
Let the adventure begin!” -Andrew Lee Creech 

We are beyond thrilled to develop and produce this epic musical next Spring in 2018! Between now and then we will be staging readings of the script and music, sharing our journey with you, our audience, so you can see this show unfold right along with us! Keep a close eye on our social media and blog for more announcements and details to come!
For now, please enjoy a sneak peek video clip of ‘Plucky Adventure Song’ from the show! Filmed at our fundraiser, courtesy of Fantasia Oslund (thank you for being our awesome back up camera person!) and performed by John Coons, Maya Burton, Jordan Iosua Taylor, and Leah Russell! You all sounded phenomenal, thank you so much!

ENJOY! We love you! ❤
