2012 saw the company open the production arm of their brand. Their first feature show was performed at Six Flags theme parks across the country where over 4,000 people a day were part of sold-out crowds to witness this all new event. Over the holiday season, iLuminate Productions launched their very first off-Broadway show, Artist of Light, which played to sold-out audiences at the Duke on 42nd Street.
2013 got off to an exciting start when the group was asked to perform at the Kids Inaugural Concert for Military Families as part of inauguration weekend in Washington D.C. With planned remounts of the Six Flags show as well as Artist of Light, in addition to their ever growing roster of corporate clients, iLuminate looks to continue to grow for a long time to come.
