In Pursuit of Magic

Show time! Marist theater presents…In Pursuit of Magic

Thursday and Saturday, October 26 & 28, 7:30 p.m.

Our own Marist Theater, with the support of the award-winning Serenbe Playhouse, has created a thrilling and chilling evening of theater for the Halloween season!

The show is an exploration of some of the darker aspects of human nature, and will be presented at various sites around campus.  Yes, it’s all outdoors.

Each of the seven stories is inspired by literature that is studied at some point in our students’ career here:  Hamlet, Red Badge of Courage, Life of Pi, Lord of the Flies, Princess and the Tiger, Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and 1984.

Here are a few important points that will help you enjoy your experience:

  • We will perform rain or shine, outdoors at all times. • Please dress for the weather.
  • The experience will last for about an hour, with no intermission.
  • Our show will take place in a variety of locations on campus, all within the same general area. You will always be walking on concrete, but please wear appropriate footwear.
  • Please gather on the large staircase off the Flag Circle by 7:30 p.m.
  • Restrooms are available in the lobby of Woodruff Auditorium. We recommend that you visit them before the show begins.
  • There will be gunshots, screams, and ghosts in our show. Be prepared.
  • PLEASE JOIN US IN COSTUME! We would love to see your favorite characters from literature, but cool Halloween-wear will be awesome, too!
  • Our show is an immersive one: you are within the action, and, at times, may be called upon to be a part of the action. Take your cues from the actors…they’ll guide your way.

Come one, come all, and help us create a chilling new first for Marist Theater! Tickets on sale at the Campus Store.

Audience: Rated PG-13. This will not be a “cute” Halloween story!
