New York-based immersive theater company WITNESS is making their west coast debut with 'Last Days of the Tsars,' a new immersive theater experience about the final days of the Romanov dynasty. Audiences will be free to move around the space as they see fit, following characters and exploring rooms as the story of the fall of the Russian empire plays out around them.

Rehearsals will begin around 9/9-9/16. Tech 10/7-10/14 for 10/15 opening. 5 performances a week for four weeks from 10/15-11/10, with shows the evenings of Tue-Fri & Sun (no Saturday shows).

The empress of Russia, an outsider in her own court whose only confidants are her husband and mystic Grigori Rasputin.

Olga Nikolaevna: Female, 25-29
The eldest daughter of the Romanov family, an intelligent young woman prepared to inherit the responsibilities of the dynasty.

Anastasia Nikolaevna: Female, 18-22
The younger daughter of the Romanov family, suffers from middle child syndrome.

Alexei Nikolaevich: Males & Females, 18-20
The youngest child and only son of Nicholas and Alexandra. A hemophiliac, he is delicate and sickly in body, though with the buoyant personality of a child who will one day be Tsar.

A nobleman and close friend of the Tsar and his family, with private concerns about the fomenting Revolution.

Mikhail Yevriov: Male, 25-35
An officer in the Russian military and a friend of Dmitri's.
