CARTOON by Steve Yockey
Directed by ensemble member Michael Cotey
Chaos ensues in ToonTown after the mischievous Trouble steals the giant hammer bratty dictator Esther uses to maintain a monotonous but peaceful order. Their mismatched cartoon world is sent spiraling into a violent free fall where friendship is betrayed, romance is twisted, and no one is safe - including the audience.
Played through a series of TV episodes like a sugar-shocked Saturday morning, CARTOON is an in-your-face satire of a forthcoming totalitarian world. Cartoon characters are brought to life (and death) in the raw forbidden playground of the Milwaukee Fortress. Join the bratty dictator, the troublemaker, the anime twins, the princess and her prince, the marionette, and the rock-and-roll bear as the play explodes like a powder keg of song, dance, violence and more violence.
That's all folks!
CARTOON is intended for mature audiences and is not suitable for children despite, you know, the whole-cartoon thing.
Featuring ensemble member Andrew Voss with Alexandra Bonesho, Lindsey Gagliano, Jordan Gwiazdowski, Sydney Ruf-Wong, Jessie Mae Scibek, and Jason Waszak.
