Masque – Intimate Musical Theatre
-Currently In Development –
Masque is a new show currently being developed by Kenneth Norman Johnson. This elegant show is being created as a “classique” style production. It features contemporary ballet choreographed to beautiful songs and instrumental numbers, performed by a small orchestra and soloists in costume situated within the set. In the true form of a masque, there is no distinct story line. The underlying theme is based on the concept that many of us hide behind masks, confusing others and ourselves as to whom we really are. True love removes our mask and frees us to be true to ourselves.
The show unfolds in a sequence of dances, songs, narration, costumes and theatrical lighting presented in a stage setting which encompasses segments of the audience within the set, creating the illusion that the audience is immersed in the midst of the show.
