Evil firebirds attacked the town and ate up all the villagers’ hearts! One scarecrow has waited hundreds of years for someone to save him... Working as a team with other players, you must now break the spell by befriending the scarecrow and returning the hearts to the townspeople.
Since its Sundance debut as a live one-on-one VR immersive theatre with a real actor, Scarecrow has been reimagined post-COVID especially for Raindance with the actor performing as an avatar in social VR platform, VRChat, allowing up to two participants to join in.
This is a live performance with an actor for up to two people. The show takes place on the VRChat social platform. You will need a VR ready PC and a compatible headset such as HTC Vive/Vive Pro/Vive Cosmos, Oculus Rift/Rift S, Valve Index or a Windows Mixed Reality headset. Please make sure to download VRChat on your PC, and follow the instructions in the booking confirmation email.
