The Undertaking is an immersive, interactive theatre experience spanning five locations in Downtown Bryan. It begins at the celebration of life for Elias Wagner, the events of which will shake the fictional community of Arton-Bryan to its core. As an immersive show, the story you experience will vary slightly or drastically depending in part on your choices and presence throughout the show; no two people will have the exact same experience.

Tickets for this event are required, and are unavailable to be purchased less than 6 hours before a performance. This means no tickets will be sold at the door. Snacks, wine, and other beverages are complimentary.This performance contains strong language and subject matter that some people might consider mature (Rating equivalent: PG13).

Information about times, dates, and tickets is below, along with a screenshot of the original invitation from Elias' wife, Claire.

April 11-13 @ 8 pm
April 18-21 @ 8 pm

The experience will begin at Square One Downtown Bryan Event Center, located at 211 W WM J Bryan Pkwy, Bryan, Texas 77803.

What to Expect

This is an immersive, interactive experience, and while you may be asked questions or invited into conversations, you will not be forced to respond or participate more than is comfortable for you.

Snacks and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) will be provided. If you have food allergies, please contact us after purchasing your ticket and we will do our best to accommodate you.

There are four ticketed tracks which all run simultaneously. Unfortunately, this makes it impossible to see more than one track in a single performance. You'll get a chance to compare notes with other residents of Arton-Bryan, don't worry! (To be clear: you don't have to see the show more than once to see the story. You'll get to see some things that people in other tracks won't and vice versa, but our goal is to make sure that you have a great experience of the overall story regardless of which track you choose!)

Please dress comfortably for both the indoors and outdoors; you will be walking and standing for portions of this show. (There are two tracks that are wheelchair accessible; please contact us with any questions)


We are committed to making theatre accessible to everyone, so we have always supported a pay-what-you-can model.

Due to the costs associated with this production (a large cast, multiple locations, food and drink, etc), we have had to set a higher minimum than for previous shows. 

$30 is our Minimum Price for all tracks

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about our pricing structure.
