The NEON Theatre Co. Presents “Breaking Protocol A51: The Escape Experience” from Aug. 27-30. A twist on the choose your own adventure book genre, mixed with a little of the escape room experience, all in one immersive theatrical experience. The audience will arrive as the first group of civilians to enter Area 51 for a guided tour. But when the tour goes sideways, it’s up to the audience and the cast to find their way out. An entirely new theatrical concept, the actors will have to adapt their script as the audience will choose their next move. Performances will take place at The Rialto Theatre, 1000 Kenmore Blvd., with five performances Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday matinees at 1p.m. Interested parties can learn more about the show by visiting https://www.facebook.com/neontheatreco/ and reserve tickets by visiting https://www.therialtotheatre.com.
