Audience reactions to our first two shows were nothing short of spectacular. Every night something new and unexpected always occurred, leaving audience and actors alike buzzed with adrenaline.
For those unfamiliar with our brand of Interactive Theatre Shows, here is a brief synopsis of the first two episodes.
Confessions of a Serial Killer
Deep in the heart of the bush, a serial killer offers to confess his crimes; but only in front of witnesses. Is it genuine or a dark and twisted game of cat and mouse?
Female of the Species
A priest, a murder, suspects, and a crime scene set in an insane asylum and a young woman wrongly accused of murder? Can you solve the mystery? Or will time run out...on you?
The unique aspect of Dark Stories Theatre Shows is that audiences are part of the narrative of the story. Audience interaction, under actor guidance, is needed to move the story along, with audience choices impacting events within the story, and the outcome.
With episode three on the drawing board, I can reveal that the entire series is now mapped out, with just the finalization of scripts to complete, and a small matter of sourcing the appropriate venues.
This series is limited to a single figure number of episodes, although I'll keep you in the dark about the precise amount at this stage. And no need to worry if you've missed an episode - we always make sure that each episode works as a standalone story. Although the more shows you've seen, the deeper you're understanding and enjoyment of the overall arc and underlying themes are going to be.
But a question for the reader if I may? This production will go live in June-July, depending on your location. Would you have an interest in pre-purchasing tickets at a heavily discounted rate?
Full price tickets to these shows are $45, so I would think a super early discount price should be something reasonably substantial, say a 50% discount ($22.50). We may even include a special preview night just for early bird ticket purchases as an added perk.
We're happy to make such tickets transferrable or refundable should circumstances arise that stop you from being able to see the show too.
Anyway, let me know what you think in the comments section or via the contact us page. If there is sufficient interest, then we'll proceed with creating an advance ticket sales page.
