Immersive Theatre … Be part of the story
In immersive theatre, the boundaries between actor, set, audience and reality are blurred generating a new and exciting emerging form of theatre that brings the audience into the story in a much more real and compelling way.
Immersive Theatre is all about creating participative theatre experiences where audience members give up their 'observer' status to become co-actors and co-creators of the storytelling process.The audience are not merely passive bystanders. They are part of the story, however small their role may be. They may have a part to play in overcoming obstacles, achieving a mission or being an influence to what is unfolding.
Although there is a story-line with a mission and plot, our performers intuitively interact with audience members This makes every performance totally unique because no two audience members will ever respond the same way and therefore the response of the actor is also unique.
Santa’s Enchanted Wardrobe Immersive theatre experience invites co-actors ( audience members) to begin the experience with a game of hide and seek, entering the fantasy world through an enchanted wardrobe and completing an important mission by physically making their way through various Fantasy lands that have obstacles and tasks to complete. The audience can choose their level of interaction by making choices about how to respond to actors and obstacles that emerge along the way.
Note: Please be advised that Buggy's/Prams must be left outside the event and Under 2's must be carried through the experience. Event organisers reserve the right to check ID of any person in attendance to this event. This includes adults and under 2-year-olds.
