The Animatronicans

  • Footlight Theatre at the Parliament House 410 North Orange Blossom Trail Orlando, FL, 32805 United States (map)

On the heels of a sold out run at the Orlando Fringe Festival, Jeff Jones’ award winning comedy centered on the lives of four theme park animatronic characters living together in a home off property from the parks opens at the Footlight Theatre at the Parliament House on November 4. The show won the Patron’s Pick and the Critics Choice award for Best Comedy Play. 

The Animatronicans is a sitcom style show that follows the adventures of theme park animatronic characters from current and closed attractions. See what happens when the parks close and everyone, living and mechanical, goes home for the night. In our story President Abraham Lincoln (Josh Siniscalco), Journey in to Imagination’s Dreamfinder (Jeff Jones), now closed Maelstrom’s Polar Bear (James Keaton) and Carousel of Progress’s John (Doug Ba’aser) share a private home in Windermere. Their identities have been unknown to their neighbors for years until one day when a journalist from the human world (Janine Klein) knocks on their door and turns their magical world upside down. Once the curtain comes down, you’ll never look at a theme park attraction the same way. The show is written by Jeff Jones (Welcome to Hell, Hell Freezes Over, Little Miss Fringe Festival) and directed by Fringe veteran Michael Wanzie (The Lion Queen and the Naked GoGo Cub).
