What is The Wedding Show?
The Wedding Show is a 3-hour immersive theatre production where audience members (“guests”) participate in a wedding reception, ceremony, and party. The event is similar to a murder mystery, set in the style of a hypertext drama where the “guests” move about and interact with the actors, following a storyline of their choice. The Wedding Show offers the guests all the best parts of a wedding including lawn games, laughs, love, drama, a buffet dinner, toasts and dancing.
Actors will improvise and interact with "guests" throughout the evening, performing songs, dancing, and acting out scripted scenes.
"Guests" will have opportunities to participate in specific components of the show.
This will be a collaboratively created show where the cast work in small groups to develop special elements and gags. Every performance will be a little different based on the guest interactions and choices made by the actors. Cast and crew are encouraged to bring their own wedding traditions and stories to the performance. It's also queer friendly!
