Friday, October 4, from 8 pm to midnight, a garden courtyard and church parish hall in the Audubon Park Garden District are being transformed into a dazzling theater spectacle, a Victorian era ball room that for one night only will be a party thrown by Lady Evangeline Raven, in tribute to her lost love, Lord Falcon.
Teaming up with Phantasmagoria, Orlando’s original Victorian steampunk circus troupe, the evening will feature a menu of smoked duck, beef tenderloin, an array of artisan salads and sides and craft beer and wine as well as fire breathers, stilt walkers, cabaret artists, cigarette girls bearing candy cigarettes, and possibly a tarot card reader.
“It will be a fully immersive, party atmosphere experience reminiscent of Sleep No More, Punchdrunk’s immersive production which was a mash-up of Hamlet and Alfred Hitchcock,” says Jennifer Marvel, APGD’s Director. “We want people to have a bite to eat, have a drink, and enjoy entertainment that happens around them. They become part of the show. And if they want to come in some sort of costume? So much the better.”
This one night only event is a fundraiser for the Audubon Park Garden District, an Orlando Main Street program. Tickets are available online at http://conta.cc/1dO1Xph.
Tickets are all inclusive. Each ticket holder receives two free glasses or beer or wine. Cash bar also available.
The evening’s festivities will take place at the beautiful Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 1603 East Winter Park Drive, Orlando, Florida 32803 and will feature an extensive menu by Chef Jamie MacFadden of Cuisiniers; dessert by Blue Bird Bake Shop; props and staging by The Party Guys and Dutch Door Antiques; and Redlight Redlight is curating the alcohol selections.
