Embrace The Grave

An iMagicon Exclusive Live Interactive Theatrical Experience (L.I.T.E)

Family. There’s the one you’re born into and the one you create. Your last name means something. It’s a reminder of your past and your future. This family has been carefully built over centuries. Each one of us has a purpose. We have earned the right to be known as Hecata. And now, it’s time for us to defend it. Every deal we make, every lie we tell.  Everything we do is for the family. Everything we do is for our name. It’s time our enemies remember why we have proven blood is thicker than water. It’s time we embrace the grave.

Join us on Saturday night (April 29) at 8 pm for an exclusive iMagicon live interactive theatrical experience (LITE). Your evening will start off with a late-evening dinner and show performed by Black Veil Burlesque. Then the night will transition to the Embrace the Grave interactive theater event.
