ABANDON, the frightening new theatrical experience opening at Vegas Theatre Company in October, to donate a portion of all proceeds from tickets sold to performances on Friday, October 13 to The Center
ABANDON, the frightening new theatrical experience opening at Vegas Theatre Company is proud to partner with The Center for a special Friday the 13th Charity Night on the scariest night of the year. A frightening, kinky, and darkly humorous theatrical experience, ABANDON will donate a portion of proceeds from all tickets sold for the 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. performances on Friday, October 13 to The Center. Tickets for the Friday the 13th Charity Night in benefit of The Center and other nights can be purchased at theatre.vegas/abandon. “The Marquis de Sade is considered by LGBTQ+ scholars to be one of the first authors to write about homosexuality as being as normal as heterosexuality, long before Oscar Wilde's time," said Jana Wimer, ABANDON co-writer and director. “The ABANDON cast has several remarkable members of the LGBTQ+ community and it’s truly an honor to work alongside an amazing organization such as The Center to help empower the community and further promote inclusion for all.”
Presented by Las Vegas Horror Show, LLC and Vegas Theatre Company, ABANDON will blur the line between pleasure and pain into a mind-bending world of unspeakable horrors and forbidden desires. Set in the dark corners of 1800s Paris, ABANDON pushes the boundaries of live theater while taking audiences on a terrifying journey through the life and writings of the Marquis de Sade during his years spent imprisoned in insane asylums. ABANDON is a truly unique theatrical experience where psychological terror, grotesque beauty, and edgy kink collide to create a horror production like no other. This is an experience that will haunt audiences long after the final curtain falls. ABANDON performance dates include:
· Thursday, Oct. 12, 2023
· Friday, Oct. 13, 2023 (The Center charity night)
· Saturday, Oct. 14, 2023
· Friday, Oct. 20, 2023 to Sunday, Oct. 22, 2023
· Thursday, Oct. 26, 2023 to Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023
The show will begin right at 7 p.m., but you’re encouraged to arrive by 6:30 p.m., as there will be plenty to explore, see, and do in the immersive pre-show experience. The bar will be open! (You're going to need some liquid courage). So come early, grab a drink, explore the world of ABANDON, and enjoy the show.
Once the show begins, the doors will close. ABANDON relies on total darkness, and we are not able to open the door during the performance, which will run for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. Vegas Theatre Company is located at 1025 S 1st St. in the fabulous Las Vegas Arts District. Parking is free in front and in the large lot just east of the theater. There is also plenty of paid parking on the streets.
Lastly, you’re encouraged to make an evening of it! The show has partnered with many of the bars and restaurants in The Arts District bars and restaurants. Come early for dinner, stay late for drinks:
Thursday: $50 Prix Fixe menu and custom cocktails at Taverna Costera
Friday: $50 Prix Fixe menu and custom cocktails at Yu-Or-Mi Sushi (reservation required)
