FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Please Reblog)

November 12, 2013 – After months of deliberation and several serious considerations the Basilique Performing Arts Company (BPAC) has chosen a libretto for the dance-theatre production that will follow Romeo + Juliet in March 2014.

Not yet specifying the source text or music, Beck and Crabsticks expect to announce the full details on December 7th, 2013 at a major Second Life fashion event, after conducting feasibility tests.

The 2014 production will be considerably more ambitious than Romeo + Juliet, both technically and theatrically. Canary Beck has adapted the treatment from one of the most famous epics in English Literature. Even more exciting, the production will be set to one of the world’s most famous classical masterpieces by one of the most loved composers that has ever lived.

Harvey Crabsticks will be technically directing the production and Beck will resume her role as Art Director. They will both also act in lead roles in the production. There will be four more roles the Company will be casting, as well as recruiting ushers, bloggers, photographers, and videographers.

Unlike with Romeo + Juliet, BPAC will be inviting sponsors to take part, requesting proposals from clothing designers to design bespoke costumes and furniture designers to build custom props that can be built into sets.

There are five scheduled performances of Romeo + Juliet between now and the end of the year. The Company hopes to continue performing the play through early 2014 – although this depends on the size of the challenges they encounter as they prepare this new work.

The Basilique Performing Arts Company is based at the Basilique Playhouse. Their second production, Romeo + Juliet opened on April 27, 2013 and has run weekly to both popular and media acclaim.
