'The Haunted' explores immersive storytellingWritten by Andrea Miller
This fall, the Upper School Theater Department invited a limited set of audiences to follow them into a series of stories that explored the haunting and lingering impact of unfinished business. Using the storytelling device of immersive theater, a technique that uses space and design to curate a tangible and sensory environment, while focusing on the personal and individual audience experience, each actor spun a web of mystery and, ultimately, resolution.
Each subplot was authored by Director of Theater Andrew Geha, and audience members were randomly assigned to a protagonist who, bit by bit, uncovered their truth in search of the viewer's truth.
In this video, go behind the scenes to hear from cast members of "The Haunted," as well as director Andrew Geha.
