Carnival of wonders - our story

In November 2018,  “Carnival of Wonders” was born out of director and renown choreographer Christopher Childers' vision. It was performed with heart by a diverse and talented cast selling out all four shows within a week. The storyline was very personal but ended up resonating with each audience. Carnival of Wonders ended  up creating an incredibly positive ripple that spread to all corners of the world. 

To harness this momentum, we are taking Carnival of Wonders to entirely new heights.  Instead of a show, Carnival of Wonders is now THE MOVIE.  All the heart and dedication from our diverse and extraordinary cast is showcased along with the powerful stories of our lead performers and the wild characters in our town of lost souls.

Christopher Childers is the creative director, choreographer, and force of nature behind this year's storyline again. He is partnered with his lifelong friend and creative genius, Jonathan Lawrence, a Los Angeles based film director and creative cinematographer. Stay tuned for the spectacular Carnival of Wonders THE MOVIE.
