Immersive Scary Theater at RRCC

LAKEWOOD, CO - The Red Rocks Community College (RRCC) Theatre Arts and Dance Department will present Fear Harvesting, written by Leigh Miller and Brian Luzietti and directed by Leigh Miller, at the Red Rocks Community College, Lakewood Campus on October 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30 at 7 pm.

Fear Harvesting is a new immersive production premiering at RRCC. Audience members will check in at the Great Hall just inside the west entrance of the Lakewood campus, where they will be led through a series of experiments designed to collect fear.

Playwright, director, and RRCC instructor Leigh Miller describes his vision for this show. “I don’t really enjoy Haunted Houses. Not because they scare me but because they bore me. The rules are pretty clear:  The chainsaw guy can’t touch me. There is someone lurking around that corner. I will never actually encounter a Zombie. In Fear Harvesting, we set out to create a world where your real fears are in the room…and you have to face them.”

The five-member cast has been put to the test with this new show. “The cast has been amazing,” Leigh Miller adds. “They are learning so much about performing in Immersive Theatre, this non-traditional performance space. The audience is standing right next to you, talking right to you, there is nowhere to hide. For young artists, it can be in pretty intense, and our cast is doing a great job.”

The audience will also be tested. This play may contain adult content including adult language, violence, and disturbing images. It may not be suitable for all audiences, especially children under 17. Viewer discretion is advised.

Tickets are limited, due to social distancing guidelines. Masks are required for all attending the event. Tickets for all three Theatre Department productions this fall may be purchased via this website: http://www.tinyurl.com/RRCCTickets.
