Sunday for ages Tween and Teen.

The age of heroes is long past. Darkness has covered the land. Hope is all but lost. In the midst of this bleak world...a glimmer of light remains. There is a legend that says one day a hero will appear. Wielding a brilliant, Shining Emblem, they will banish the darkness and return light to our world. The time of prophecy is nigh. The hero has appeared and that hero...is YOU!


The Saga of the Shining Emblem is a one-of-a-kind Improvised story-telling experience, heavily influenced by the Role Playing greats of old. Each performance, one lucky audience member is chosen to be The Hero. They are then guided through an adventure by one actor serving as narrator and all other NPCs they encounter on their journey. Their quest? To find the Shining Emblem, an object of unlimited power capable of granting any wish. How they find it (or if they even bother to quest at all) is totally up to them! Its an unbelievable, unforgettable, unimaginable adventure all made up on the spot! All set to a live score!


Catch them at various times all weekend long, simply watch or become part of the performance!
