CHICAGO, Illinois (November 1, 2022) – Otherworld Theatre Company today announced three different holiday shows running at their storefront at 3914 N. Clark St. for the 2022 holiday season. From a one-shot Live Action Role Playing game, to an immersive journey to the kingdom of the Nutcracker, to a New Year’s feast like none other, Otherworld Theatre brings audiences into the story, with no two identical performances.
Otherworld presents ‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE AMELTIDE: A One-Shot Immersive LARPDecember 9, 2022 - January 29, 2023, a single-night installment of the popular and long-running CHRONICLES OF THE REALM LARP series.

Be a mage outlaw, a Strykarrian assassin on the job, a Druid on a journey to find the life-saving antidote for your feverish friend, and more - the Quest Board changes daily so no two experiences are ever the same. Limited to five players, this intimate experience is a hybrid between LARP, Escape Room, and immersive theatre. Shows run Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 5:30 and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.; tickets are $65 and include a beverage (alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available).
