‘QuaranSCREAM Live’ brings interactive horror straight to your home

by Susan and Simon Veness

There is a pandemic on. A killer is on the loose. Can you and your friends survive the night, using only the “rules” of horror films and your social media skills against a deadly stalker who is always one click ahead?

Live performers, pre-produced video, and audience participation combine as “QuaranSCREAM Live” unveils the horrifying story of a masked killer terrorizing a small town during a pandemic, when everyone is stuck at home and there is no one to rescue them.

This online live-streaming show, based on the classic slasher film, “Scream,” allows viewers to interact with performers, moving the story in different directions via social media and a video chat room. And because the show is live, the “rules” change according to audience participation.

There are three dates to choose from—Oct. 17, 24, and 30—and each performance begins at 7 p.m. PST/10 p.m. EST. Tickets are $30 per household.

Take note, this is not a family-friendly event, as it features profanity and sexual innuendo. To make the most of this experience, viewers are also encouraged to indulge in a drinking game, so only those of drinking age should participate. Rules for the drinking game will be posted during the event, and participation is not required.

QuaranSCREAM Live is the brainchild of executive producers Nate Weber and Allison Fox through their joint venture, 88Twenty Group, which blends “theater, cinema, and immersive experiences to create things that are greater than the sum of their parts.” Actors in this live comedy-horror include Zach Villa (“American Horror Story: 1984”), Riley Costello (“Hairspray Live!” and “Wicked”), and Alisha Soper (“Feud: Bette and Joan”). The show is the first of several offerings to take place in “Post-COVID Theater” and an all-new family-friendly experience is coming for the holiday season.
