“The Hunt of the Scarecrows” beta run.

O'Ryan and Kate in "Scarecrows" trest. Late last night, members of ZU were running and driving about town in an attempt at a beta test for the next immersive theatre piece, called “The Hunt of the Scarecrows”. The skeletal script, which is more like stage directions at the moment, is being developed by Michael Verderber and will have additional scenes written by Katherine Orozco-Verderber.

Zeta and Katy testing "Scarecrows".

The theme this year is an immersive spy game set in Emerald City, the gritty world established in “Nightmare of Oz.” More to come soon!

Here is a post-run discussion picture where we outlined the timing issues and segments that need further development. It ran quite late into the night.

Post run meeting.
