Spend an evening in the presence of the king of the goblins at The Goblin King Masquerade Ball...

The 2023 Ball was a HUGE success, so we're hosting the next one over two nights: January 12 & 13, 2024.

Turner Hall Ballroom (Milwaukee, WI) will be transformed into a dreamworld full of fantasy and magic for revelers to immerse themselves in. Guests can enjoy a waltz dance class, cocktails/mocktails, special performances from The Goblin King Players, a curated vendors alley, exclusive photo ops, and more.

Guests must be 18+. Formal attire/cosplay recommended. Casual clothing will not be admitted (unless part of a very specific cosplay. There's 1 from the film that would work).

Awkward Nerd Events’ January Ball has always been a popular opportunity to get together with friends, dress elegantly, and de-stress from the holiday rigamarole. Don't miss your opportunity for the hottest ticket in town!

Told through a series of cabaret-style vignettes and an inter-braided love story centering YOU in six human characters, or soul types, The Genderless Play Experiment is a direct-address exploration of q***r joy that breaks down preconceived notions about gender, sexuality, and identity, as well as underscores and salutes the endless human journey of self-discovery.

Taking cues from Taylor Mac’s The Lily’s Revenge, Diana Oh’s My Lingerie Play, and Aleshea Harris’s What to Send Up When It Goes Down, The Genderless Play Experiment invites audiences into a big-hearted, welcoming ritual celebration of love and community across the spectrum of experience.

November 3-4. 9-11 | 7:30pm
November 6 | 3:00pm
