The Séance is an interactive theatre experience written and directed by Madison Rhoades, and ran from Oct. 3rd– Nov. 23rd. We had a total of 182 shows and 1,148 audience members attend! It was a lot of fun while it lasted, and it was hard to say goodbye after an additional 3 week extension but all good things must come to an end… or do they?
The Séance was designed to be an experience that could be easily altered and remounted again in a historical location. We are reaching out to historical societies across the nation in hopes that The Séance comes back again this year with a new home! If you know a location that could be a good fit for this show, please let us know!
The production is easily changeable to suit a historical location without causing damage to the existing structure. It would be great to work with historical societies, museums, theaters, and non-profit organizationsto help bring in revenue. Participants will learn the history of the location, learn how ghost hunting tools work, perform a séance, and get to explore the space in organized small groups. During their experience they will stumble upon a mystery to solve that will reveal deeper secrets.
The Séance allowed audience members to feel like they were part of a real-life ghost adventure where they got to experience theatrical paranormal events. They were given clear goals and challenges to overcome as a team, and are were able to interact with the performers and their surroundings to progress the story forward.
We received amazing reviews from press, including: HorrorBuzz.com, Sinful Celluloid, The Haunt Girl, Nightmarish Conjurings, Haunting.net, Gaming Shogun, Media Geeks, No Proscenium, The Scare Zone, Just Horror Stuff, Westcoaster, Halloween Every Night, Hollywood Gothique, Nerd Reactor, Creepy Kingdom, and Enjoy Orange County. Here are a few quotes:
