Martha's Vineyard Calendar Rizing
Martha's Vineyard Calendar


Join Abby Bender and Jesse Jason this Halloween season for a second run of Rizing, a site-specific evening of immersive storytelling and movement.

Breathe loudly and wake up! This is not your ordinary haunted house.

The performance invites small audiences into an unusual house with an even more unusual history, where they encounter things that go bump in the night. As the characters that inhabit this residence share their stories through text, dance and theater, guests are enveloped in shifting worlds of sorrow, humor, terror and treats. Performances take place in a private home in Oak Bluffs and run approximately one hour. Location provided upon ticket reservation.

  • It is strongly suggested that audiences be at least 13 years of age.
  • This is an intimate performance that requires attention and careful listening.
  • The approximately one-hour performance requires standing and brief periods of walking. There is periodic seating but audiences should be prepared to move every few minutes. Audiences must be able to navigate steep, narrow staircases.

Performed by Abby Bender, Hannah Burbidge, Molly Coogan, Scott Crawford, Lucy Grinnan, Laura Hall, Jesse Jason, Roberta Kirn, Claire Page, Katie Perez, and Xavier Powers. Guest voices by Justen Ahren, Brooke Ditchfield, Scott Hershowitz, Brian Hall, Chelsea McCarthy, Rob Myers, Niki Patton, Katherine Reid, and Cassie Tunick and video by Danielle Mulcahy. 

Tickets $18. Reservations required. Spots are limited and available first-come, first-served at
