ENGAGE! A Choose-Your-Own Science Fiction Fight Show

August 3 @ 8:00 pm - August 25 @ 8:00 pm

| $20

There is a lone little spaceship. The only crew is a Smuggler, an Android, an Alien, and a Space Monk. They are on a secret deep space salvage mission. What’s next? That’s up to one lucky Player! A fun, fight-filled spoof on your favorite sci-fi tropes, ENGAGE! is a choose-your-own adventure book, role-playing game, and stellar stage combat-fueled piece of interactive theatre all rolled into one.

Every show one audience volunteer will be chosen as the “Player” who will have to make decisions throughout the show, navigating various obstacles and puzzles, making every performance of ENGAGE! a truly unique experience. Patrons are strongly encouraged to attend more than one performance of this epic space adventure to see as many of the potential options as possible.

The show previews August 3rd and runs August 4th – August 25th. Performances will be at Theater Wit (1229 W. Belmont Ave. Chicago, IL 60657) Thursday-Saturday evenings at 8:00pm. Tickets are $20 and available online or at the door. (Note: $5 tickets can be reserved for repeat patrons only. A physical ticket to a previous performance must be presented at the box office to receive the discount.)
