Denizens of the carnival have been known to favor black, white, and red. This is a Dark Carnival Halloween event. Costumes are highly encouraged and may gain the attention of eerie entities. Dress to dazzle, but beware beguiling invitations.
Will this be similar to other Incantrix events?
Yes and no. Incantrix Faerie Masquerade events are more group story-oriented, while the Carnevale will be more focused the variety show and performances for the group, while much more intensely personal for story elements with our actors. Intrepid Travelers may find deeper mysteries to delve into, but only the bravest shall be rewarded.
Do I need to know anything about other Incantrix events to enjoy myself?
No, not at all. There is a continuing story that ties Incantrix events together, but it is entirely optional and not at all necessary for the enjoyment of any event. Interaction is not mandatory, you may choose your level of involvement.
How do I find the actors?
Actors wear a golden key pin so that you may readily identify them. Actors will not pull audience members away from the show while it is ongoing, but before, during intermission, and after, all bets are off.
How scary is this event?
If you just attend the variety show, tame. If you fall down the rabbit hole, expect the grotesque and terrifying. You are encouraged to excuse yourself politely if you are too frightened or disquieted by what you find. Fall at your own risk.
What does a VIP Ticket get me?
Premium seating near center stage, some Incantrix swag, plus guaranteed opportunities to participate in the immersive theater aspects of the event… if you can stand the heat.
