• 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. FEAR Tell Us Your Story

Shows run in 30-minute intervals with possible encores to follow. We have made our way to the Pacific Northwest, trying to avoid the undead hordes roaming the countryside. Haven’t seen as many of them after coming to this strip of land between the river and the hills. To our surprise, we have come upon what is left of a small town along the Columbia. This town looks different from others we have come across. Most buildings intact, and not too much activity here now, living or dead. Perhaps the town is giving a false sense of security. Some signs of radioactive leaking, and hard to ignore the chemical smell of contamination from the river. Even stranger, it seems the apocalypse hit in the middle of a city-wide Halloween festival - there are old decorations everywhere. This town was obsessed with Halloween!

These remnants of an old festival might be the sign of hope our group has needed. We are going to rest here, keep looking for people to help. Need to let folks tell their story, reclaim our humanity. We found a building that can be secured, big enough for all of us. We can make it safe for you. We have left this message for you. You are still here. You have a story to tell. We have all done bad things, and we can do better. Let us help you. Find us here in St. Helens, along the Columbia River. Spread the word. The search continues, we are waiting for you. We are going to figure out what happened in this small town. You have nothing to fear. Tell us your story.

If you are reading this, then you’ve heard our message. Heard that we are offering help. You are invited to visit our refuge in downtown St. Helens. This interactive event will give you the chance to live inside a thrilling tale during the zombie apocalypse, and tell us how you made it this far. After hearing your story, we’ll ask you to join our hearty band of survivors, to better thrive in these dark days.

Ticket holders will be given a minimal character role in our story, a place to stop running and rest at our interview table, and a small bag of supplies from our survival stash. Mature audience members only please, children under 12 prohibited.

Tickets include the potential for group participation, but with the unpredictability of the apocalypse, not all stories may be recorded. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased via the event’s Facebook page or through Eventbrite at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fear-tell-us-your-story-tickets-72877952919?aff=efbeventtix.
