Stan State Theatre is proud to introduce
Martin Noyes from Irvine California.

Martin will be directing Stan State Theatre Students in
"Adventure Theatre"

"Adventure Theater is a new style of live entertainment combining roleplaying games and Improv for an interactive theatrical experience. The audience participates in helping create the story, playing the monsters, and rolling the 20-sided dice. New ideas and discoveries are made to push the story forward, to an unknown and epic conclusion. The show is a long-form Improv performed without a written script and no two shows are ever the same. Each night is the furthering of the story, as the audience interacts to affect what happens to the main characters. The main characters work as a team of adventurers solving, interacting, and performing their parts to reveal the circumstances of the story."
