Student Series

Set behind the gates of the Daisyland Carnival, a music & mayhem shadow show, the carnival is a small but legendary one that began its run sometime in the early 1970s. No one knows for sure exactly when, only that is has appeared every fall, across the country in a series of vacant lots and overgrown fields, far from the reach of city lights and the law. Once the gates have closed and all the patrons have gone home, the cast of the carnival comes to life. Each member of the troupe has a dark gift and job to fulfill, as Daisyland is a place for the collection of souls. Daisyland is open from dark to dawn. Where dreams come true and nightmares begin.
