See the stars peeking through the trees. Hear the scurrying of something in the dark. Reach into the unknown. There is something else out there… something that shouldn’t be. UFOs have been seen flying over the woods, and some have claimed to see unearthly creatures between the trees. Now you must journey down the trail and learn what secrets the forest holds. Along the way, you’ll meet crazy conspiracy theorists, British time-travelers, and maybe, just maybe, some friends who are out-of-this-world. This outdoor immersive theater experience takes audiences on a walking adventure through the mysterious, “Woodland of Wonder”. A rustle in the bushes… a figure in your peripheral… something unearthly is there! “The Invaders” satisfies all scifi cravings in real time as audiences meet conspiracy theorists, time travelers, and maybe, some friends who are out-of-this-world. Reserve your time slot soon! Silver Bell Farm, 305 Silver Street, Monson, MA. www.silverbellfarm.com
