The Hunt is a new immersive theater project that reimagines the 1692 Salem Witch hysteria in a modern, abstracted setting. The bewitching young Perseph has gone missing, and viewers must navigate a highly unusual cast of characters while unravelling the strange circumstances surrounding her disappearance—ultimately deciding her fate. Designed for an intimate audience and built by a cast of immersive theater vets and fresh, energetic performers, we hope to create an unforgettable evening, one in which even the actors cannot predict the outcome.

In the spring of 2016, The Hunt was one of four proposals to be awarded the generous Great Performances Scholarship Grant (featured in the Broadway Buzz section of the Wall Street Journal), taking us over halfway to our fundraising goals for this stage of the project. We still need $3500 to bring this very special event to life, and we need your help to do it!

Your donation will help us:

- Fully realize our creative vision for set and costume designs

- Replenish our props each night

- Hire technical crew

- Hire a live musician

- Hire security during the event

- Rent a sound system

- Transport and store our set pieces

Risks and challenges

We have been thrilled with the incredible amount of support and buzz generated by The Hunt, but we still have more work to do to make this show a reality. Our next challenge is to achieve our fundraising goals— and we need your help! Thank you for considering to support our work.
