Carnival Girls Productions, along with the entire theater community, was dramatically affected by a global pandemic, a civil rights movement and a wounded economy. All of which will alter the theatrical landscape forever. And it becomes ever apparent that CGP needs to pivot. It is my hope that this evolved model will help preserve the health and longevity of CGP and make for happier, more fulfilled artists. #carnyon
