Theatre Bizarre is a decade-old underground Halloween masquerade held annually in a desiccated neighborhood just south of the now abandoned Michigan State Fair grounds. Operating entirely outside of the law, despite being in plain sight, the show has become an international legend, with nearly 11,000 Facebook fans despite the fact that at its peak it could only accommodate 2,500 attendees. In 2010 the city of Detroit moved to shut the party down with mixed success. Big Bang's film will utilize Theatre Bizarre's deep library of historical video and still images to tell the behind-the-scenes story of the outlaw production's rise, fall and possible resurrection.

“We've been working closely with John Dunivant and the Theatre Bizarre team,” explained Gary Bredow (co-director of the film in partnership with Per Franchell). “We're going to be able to tell the whole story in a way that only a few people have ever seen. If it weren't on video, a lot of it wouldn't even be believable.”

The June 30 event will take place at Pontiac, Michigan's Crofoot Ballroom. It also marks the kickoff of Big Bang's Kickstarter.com fundraising effort as well as the launch of Theatre Bizarre's first full-featured website. All those in attendance will be listed as Associate Producers in the film's credits and will have the opportunity to donate to the project at a higher level using the on site Kicktarter kiosk. The show will feature acts including The Ruiners, Death Lab, Satori Circus, The Royal Shitesmen and Irina Arial, with more acts to be announced.

Those attending the fundraiser are encouraged to dress in costume and will have the opportunity to share their favorite Theatre Bizarre memories on video for possible inclusion in the documentary. Attendees will also be the first to see the teaser trailer for the documentary and will have access to exclusive Theatre Bizarre merchandise at the event. Doors open at 8pm. Presale tickets are $25 and will be available at Noir Leather and Showtime Clothing.

After the event, those not in attendance will be able to donate to the documentary effort through Kickstarter.com and through a portal on TheatreBizarre.com.

Please note... this party is to kick off the documentary and possibly become a part of it. The film is currently in production and scheduled for release in early 2012.
