About the Show

Over twenty artists worked to create this installation and stage set made entirely out of salvaged cardboard which covered almost every square inch of the giant space. This show featured many Whoop Dee Doo highlights including a live amputation by the 7th Missouri Irish Brigade, a two-hour pancake eating contest, teenage boy bands, clogging troupes, and three competing high school step teams. And to top it all off, we created a live music video with local R&B singer Coco J. Jackson.
