Unique. Charismatic. Benevolent.
The Phantom Folktales Players (produced by PigPen Theatre Company) are a series of pop-up musical and theatrical events during a voyage on the gorgeous Scarlet Lady.
The cast is composed of charismatic, generous, and imaginative performers, musicians, and puppeteers with a knack for audience engagement in intimate settings. Each performer has featured song/story/puppeteering events. Together, the ensemble collaborates to perform a collection of stories, songs, and events across the ship. We are prioritizing a diverse multi-racial and multicultural cast. Performances are in English but accents are welcome.
