Seattle Immersive Theatre

Seattle Immersive Theatre creates richly-detailed worlds and intimate, multi-sensory experiences for audiences to engage with and explore. Our unique events range from exclusive, one-night engagements all the way to full-scale theatrical productions staged in unconventional play spaces throughout Seattle.




Seattle Immersive Theatre had a little something special all wrapped up for you this holiday season! Notable local playwright Kelleen Conway Blanchard and award-winning director Paul Thomas, together with the Seattle Immersive Theatre team, gifted you this scary-merry holiday happening that plunged you directly into the Christmas demon’s realm.

Krampus Christmas unfolded as a kind of carnival ride through your Christmas nightmares. Krampus, Jolly Saint Nick's devilish counterpart, punished the naughty while you explored a world where you could peek through the walls, make your way through the Christmas present maze, and explore the eerily beautiful snowy wonderland. Krampus Christmas invited you to a darkly funny immersive experience of holiday justice, plunging you into a multi-sensory spectacle- if you dared.

With a terrifyingly jolly elf as your guide- you lived the nightmare along with all of the other bad girls and boys. Ever wondered what happens if you’re on the naughty list?

"Seattle Immersive Theatre is famous for its grand world-building endeavours, solid acting, and for taking its audiences on great adventures. This production lives up to all of that.... It is a unique experience, expertly executed, and worthy of the beast. And it blows conventional holiday theatre right off the map." - City Arts Magazing

"None of this is subtle — and why should it be? There are demons lurking, and Krampus himself is ready to feast." - Seattle Times
