Carnival of Ruin

This past summer, EGTPR had the privilege of working with the WCU’s Department of Theatre and Dance to host the debut of Carnival of Ruin! Carnival of Ruin was a live theatrical performance with a message of sustainability. In fact, all costumes, props and stages were made from post-consumer waste! And we have many East Goshen residents to thank for their contributions! Beginning in 2019, residents donated used plastic bags, clothing, tidy Cat bins and old soda cans that became part of this artistic masterpiece! One of the neatest elements were the six PSAs featuring Charlie Boggs, CoR’s Carnival Barker and EGTPR’s Director Jason Lang, as the hilariously discussed ways we can live more sustainably.

You can view these funny, two minute PSAs and learn a little bit too!
