Listen folks, I know my page is deeply at risk of being considered a secondary ad account for Misfit Cabaret lately, but I’m really so proud of this show and this cast of lovely people who I adore and also my puppet somehow reminds me of a Disneyland animatronic which brings me joy. I am a very lucky and grateful mad puppeteer. ❤️ Photos by @zoartphotography and Emily Ephidian.
This cast is so phenomenal, and I really love doing the show so much! I’m really excited to do it again tonight, and I really hope to see you all there! #misfitcabaret #katrobichaud #halloween #circusarts #drag #puppetry #burlesque #varietyshow
Hooooooly crap, folks! Scary Stories just got accepted into a SECOND film festival – the Nightmares Film Festival in Columbus Ohio! I am so incredibly thrilled that people are enjoying our preposterous little films, and I’m so grateful to have friends to help make these harebrained schemes happen! ❤️❤️

So I’m building a few things for Misfit Cabaret: Night Terrors, but I specifically set myself a goal that for this Halloween season, I wanted to give Kat one of the coolest, scariest, largest puppets that I’ve ever put on a stage. Here’s the unpainted head so far for the gobliny/dragon/wendigo monster that’ll be stomping around the Alcazar stage starting October 4th! I’m also gonna build A KITTY!!!! #puppets #puppetmaking #misfitcabaret #nightterrors #halloween #alcazartheatre
On opening weekend of ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’, I’m thrilled to announce that an installment of our parody series ‘Sassy’s Scary Stories to Tell by the Campfire’ is going to be showing at the NEW ORLEANS HORROR FILM FESTIVAL!!!

Even though we’re only in July, we here at Team Shadow Circus never stop thinking about Halloween, and that’s why I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be doing creature puppetry for the San Francisco run of Misfit Cabaret: Night Terrors!
Join the Darling Misfits for an 80’s slumber party that goes horribly wrong as the guests start dying in horrific ways. A musical Variety show with intrigue, murder, popcorn and more! Don’t miss as contortionists climb out of TVs, Freddy Kruger slips into your dreams and out of her clothes, and we unmask a murderer!
Misfit Cabaret is a splendiferous variety show centered around magical music with a rotating cast of eccentric performers. From burlesque to drag to circus to magic, you never know what you’re going to see (or what you’re getting yourself into)! For each new Misfit Cabaret, emcee Kat Robichaud writes two original songs keeping with the theme of the evening and plays them with her Darling Misfit band, as well as a special medley to kick off the evening and welcome in the spirits of San Francisco’s saucy past. There’s comedy, romance, and bawdiness around every corner and not a dull moment or dry eye in the house.
Night Terrors begins the first two weekends in October, at Misfit Cabaret’s new home at the Alcazar Theater in San Francisco! We’ll be posting more details as they come!

In just ONE MONTH we’ll be venturing down to LA to bring Misfit Cabaret Whimsea LA to our Southern California friends! It’ll be an amazing night of music, sideshow, drag, a menagerie of my belligerent puppets and our intrepid and talented captain Kat Robichaud steering the ship!
