THE SILHOUETTES®, created, directed and owned by Lynne Waggoner-Patton was first formed in March, 2009. Lynne was asked to create a show using photographs, shadows and dance that would make the audience remember Colorado.
Thus, THE SILHOUETTES® were formed. A Denver based entertainment company saw the news coverage from the March 2009 event and asked to book THE SILHOUETTES® for corporate clients. In October, 2010 THE SILHOUETTES® were asked to attend an audition for America’s Got Talent Season 6. THE SILHOUETTES® went on to place 2nd out of over 100,000 acts and became one of the all time favorite acts on the show. Performed by children for children and adults, THE SILHOUETTES® produce an entirely new standard in the performance world. Using light, color, video, photographs, dance, acting and mime, stories unfold filled with depth, intrigue, beauty and mystique. The possibilities are endless with THE SILHOUETTES® .
Although shadow work is centuries old, Lynne Waggoner-Patton offers a new standard by creating photo overlay where the dancers create a shape and the photograph of the shape appears on the screen. The fact that the cast is primarily children is also a new adventure that offers joy, excitement and unbelievable moments that makes the audience laugh with joy, experience “goose bump moments” from the passionate performances and cry with heartfelt emotion as the stories unfold.
THE SILHOUETTES® have raised over $50,000 for homeless children in the United States through their performances and strive to continue to achieve their coal of helping children around the world.
THE SILHOUETTES® have claimed their home in SHADOWLIGHT THEATRE since July 2014. It offers a beautiful training facility for rehearsal, theatre for live and filmed events and upscale site for large productions. The cast members are “high level humans” training up to 20 hours per week while still maintaining a 3.0 gpa in school. They are respectful, intelligent caring individuals who maintain the collective goal of helping children in need through every performance.
