It is the year 2099, and the demented Genesee Glasco, a quintillionaire heiress and first world ruler, is hosting the ultimate retro gala. The steampunk-themed affair will be held at the awe-inspiring Hematite Palace in the world’s new capital – Glasco Megalopolis. Using her newest invention created by a collective effort from the world’s top scientists, she has hand-selected her guests from past icons, legends and even infamous villains.

Nobody knows what Genesee specifically has planned for the gala, but this party is undeniably a world’s first. Regrettably, you are one of the icons that have suffered through the painful transport from the past. You feel disoriented and are quite mystified why you have been brought to this strange, wondrous place and why they are not allowing you to leave.

 

This is where your story begins.

 

You will receive a character assignment and description in advance. This event includes games, dinner, dessert, and intrigue! For teens ages 12-18. Registration is required and a $3.00 ticket price to be paid at the event. Registration begins June 1.
