Meet… PacKay Productions!
“Oh, hey! Welcome to the PacKay Productions studio where we build all of our crazy and wacky characters, including the stuff for this July’s Shrek: The Musical. Before I take you around and show you some of the work we’re doing here, I just wanted to take a quick moment and say thank you so much for donating to the indiegogo campaign. I know that the economy is tight, but every single dollar means so much to us, and supporting the arts is a HUGE part of what PacKay Productions is all about, so… thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, I promise you will get your money’s worth!
That said, it’s time for me to show you some of the stuff around here. Let’s go!”
Founded in 2012, PacKay Productions is a brand new company focused on fantastic family fun through puppet production and performance. Yeah, that’s a mouthful. Let’s make this simple: Packy + Kay = PacKay Productions! As a new company, we are absolutely thrilled to tackle the design challenges presented by a massive show like The Glove’s production of Shrek. Each three-dimentional puppet created for this immense musical has been custom designed and built right here in the PacKay production studio. Everything has been done in-house: from sketch pad to sewing machine to paintbrush to finished product. Our idea is to create a puppet plot that echoes the famous characters without copying them lockstep… for, um… *ahem* legal reasons as much as creative ones.
In a time when computer-generated animation and digital media have become the industry standard, we feel it’s both refreshing and quite important to be a company that focuses exclusively on the “old-school” way of doing things. When you bring your family to the show, you’re immersing yourself in the fantasy, not just sitting back in a movie theater with a pair of funny glasses strapped to your face, attractive as they may be.
We hope you’ll bring your whole family out for Shrek: The Musical, this July at the historic Glove Theater. Come see these puppets in action, plus some absolutely excellent performances from a truly talented cast. We’ll be here, ready to whisk you off to the land of far-far-away… yes, adults, I’m talking to you, too.
