Interactive theater in FQ

0 comments

Seeking talent for "Saintsbone," an interactive theater experience that will take place in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Guests will solve puzzles, interact with ghosts, and potentially save the world. Interactions with guests will be partially scripted, but will also demand a keen improvisational spirit and quick thinking.

Synopsis: The Saintsbone society has long protected the living in New Orleans. The last surviving member, Winifred DeLaporte, has been found dead. You are now Saintsbone, the only thing stopping the spirit world from opening up for good and merging with the world of the living. Explore the French Quarter, meet ghosts, solve puzzles, and save us all from chaos... or embrace it."
