WELCOME TO OTHERWORLD'S Virtual CELESTIAL GALA

Hosted by Harvey Guillén from FX's Hit Show What We Do In The Shadows

Otherworld Theatre Company was founded on the belief that each and every one of us should have the opportunity to answer the call to adventure. Our mission is to celebrate the depth of human imagination, and to speak to the spirit of the dreamers among us. Otherworld is proud to operate the only live performance venue in the world dedicated to the genres of Science Fiction and Fantasy, and we hope you will join us in celebrating eight years of groundbreaking productions.

We never expected to find ourselves in a virtual world for our eighth season, but as we've always done, we took on this challenge and created theatre for this new reality. We have brought full plays, dramas, comedies, improv, kids camps, and our immersive theatrical live-action role playing games into the digital space, and now we are inviting you to join us for Sorcery & Spectacle: The 8th Annual Celestial Gala. This event will highlight our Digital Performance Platform, and lead the way to the rebirth of Otherworld and all live theatre as we emerge on the other side of this crisis.

 

Join us. Answer the call to adventure!
