About the Show

Masters of Mayhem will star all your most-hated villains…because we can’t all be the superhero. There will be two shows this year!

Early Show (5 p.m.) – Open to youth performers and beginner students

This show is our family-friendly show. You can be a little scary but nothing too dark or adult-themed. Open to all performers, no audition required. Spots will be limited, so sign up early!
