Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta

 

Written by Diana Burbano, Tom Jacobson, Chelsea Sutton with Rogue Artists Ensemble

Original Music by Adrien Prévost

Directed by Sean Cawelti

 

A site-specific interactive theater experience in West Hollywood’s Plummer Park, Señor Plummer’s Final Fiesta celebrates, illuminates, and magnifies the life of Eugene Plummer, the original resident of Hollywood. Combining physical theater, mask performance, dance, singing, puppetry and innovative scenic pieces, we will transform parts of Plummer Park to tell stories in innovative ways.

 

Told through a patchwork of tall-tales, large-scale puppets, masks, and music. Rogue Artists Ensemble electrifies Señor Plummer’s whimsical tales of early Los Angeles in a memory map of wild west duels, pirates, land-grabbing, shark-riding, epic court battles, and, of course, fiestas. Armed with only a treasure map of Señor Plummer’s mind, the adventures you’ll encounter are not always friendly, not always logical, but always exist in the vibrant, shifting ground for dreamers that is Los Angeles. The presentation this summer will be an active workshop sketch of the piece, which will be followed by  a full production in 2018.
