SunsetGun Productions
Fundraiser for Springboard for the Arts

SunsetGun Productions Candy is raising money for Springboard for the Arts.

Support Candy Simmons & collaborators in creating a new circus-theater work!


Candy Simmons and collaborators endeavor to use live performance as a way to directly connect with our community, encouraging all participants to view themselves and the world around them a bit more clearly. SunsetGun seeks not to be bound by theatrical genre or past successes but by an intense need to engage in a meaningful dialogue with you.


I’m so glad you asked! Our focus for 2018 will be on a new show we're tentatively calling THE GRIEF PROJECT (working title). This new piece is an ambitious new adventure for SunsetGun as we create an ensemble driven circus-theater work exploring grief. Whether it's the sudden loss of a loved one, a job, a marriage, or another time in your life where it feels like the rug has been ripped out from under you, grief is an unavoidable and universal experience. How do we as individuals and a community move forward through darkness towards joy? This piece is being created in collaboration with the Twin Cities Trapeze Center (TC2) and will feature Twin Cities based circus and theater performers. We're so excited to see what happens when the fantastical world of circus meets the honest story telling approach that SGP excels in. For a little sneak peek of what Katie Kimball of TC2 and Candy Simmons of SGP have been dreaming up while in the air check out the video links above.

This new piece will debut September 2018 as a part of the Southern Theater's 2018 Season.

We’re excited. We’re ready. We need your help.
