A MODERN ROCK
About the Show
THE CASKET GIRLS is a modern rock dance theatre production. It debuted September 21, 2018 at the Center for the Performing Arts in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA, presented by Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre.
Based on the lore of the historical "casket girls" who arrived in New Orleans from France in the early 1700's, the production brings their story and mystery to life. Vampires, voodoo, love and loss - THE CASKET GIRLS is unabashedly bold, loud and dramatic... and not your grandmother's ballet.
