Through the Fourth Wall
An Immersive Game
T/W/Th/F/S/S @ 5p, 7p, & 9p
Created especially for small groups of friends and families, Through the Fourth Wall is a new, immersive game for 4-8 people. Designed by Jason McDowell-Green and Alejandro Fajardo, longtime WMPAC collaborators, who designed Big Sky Resort’s escape room, this is a theatrical take on an escape room experience.
You and your group gather at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center hoping to see your favorite performance. But something isn’t right. The theater is not what you remember it to be. It’s lifeless, dark, and there’s a strange chill in the air. Exploring unseen corners of the empty theater, you and your pod must solve puzzles and overcome challenges to bring light and life to this darkened world. Raid the concession stand! Conjure light and sound! Take part in your own story! And bring down the house to unlock the theater’s potential in this private, interactive experience.
