Audience members will race an imaginary mining cart drawn by a giant hedgepig through a mountain to win fame and fortune. Participants will get to experience a unique mash-up of the musical with the tabletop role-playing game genre. Story events will be set up in song, and audience members will be given a character to play in small groups. Appropriate for ages 11 and up.
The show is being produced as part of the Game Play Festival by The Story Gym, an immersive theater company committed to encouraging the audience to move and be involved.
Tabletop Cabaret: Hedgepig Races will run Saturday July 19 at 7 pm, Sunday July 20 at 8 pm, Tuesday July 29 at 8 pm, and Saturday August 2 at 7 pm as part of the Game Play Festival at The Brick Theater.
