One cold October night at the height of vaudeville a small theater played host to a young magician and his brand-new act. But when the lights went out, the audience was treated not to magic, but murder. Now, 100 years later, the theater has become a tourist trap, the centerpiece of a tour highlighting the city’s most ‘haunted’ spots. When a group of young tour guides are forced to spend the night locked inside, they’ll come face to face with things they can’t explain and find themselves in a life and death struggle to see the sunrise.
Renegade teams up with renowned Minneapolis illusionist Sean Phillips to create never before seen feats of magic and special effects that will power this pulse-pounding production. Using sleight-of-hand, misdirection and the latest in sound and light technology, we will take you on a terrifying journey through the longest night of four young people’s lives.
