About the event

The Change

By Calyn Liberati

Original Psychological Thriller:

An up-and-coming script meant to provoke a shift in perspective and to enhance spiritualism within us all. Reflecting on the darkness inside all of us; a dense script with horror undertones. Revolves around the two lives and afterlives of Giovanna Ryan and Evelyn Clarke (two unique opposites) and the ripple effect that stems from their wake. A twisted and thrilling symbolism of the world around us, inspiring new ways of thinking. Many themes are explored throughout their stories as well as the character 'Him' (a depiction of the devil himself).

It's time to kick it up a notch; after a huge success launching our full-scale innovative virtual performance in October 2021. We are back for another worldwide casted production; and are hitting the stage with our live debut at Wealthy Theatre!

Igniting change one voice at a time, we continue our mission with our charity founder, Calyn Liberati, bringing to life an original script, the way it was always intended. Making its way to the big stage in NYC, it all starts here in the heart of Grand Rapids, MI. Breaking barriers while fighting to end disconnection worldwide. We don’t stop here with this debut.

Join us and be one of the first to take part in our journey, as we pave the way to a better future with an influential script and live immersive experience unlike anything you've ever seen.

Our main goal: To make you think… We allow viewers an opportunity to challenge standard ways of traditional thought patterns, while enhancing perception towards the overall meaning of life. And we do so with a haunting thriller that will keep you on your feet until the bitter end.

We hope that the story being told resonates with each audience and conveys a message (one of many messages) that we are more connected than society leads us to believe. And that your perception can shape your entire way of living.


The closer you are to the stage the more you get to truly engage/participate in the live immersive experience of our storytelling. Please refer to the floor chart for a breakdown of ticket pricing. Varies according to proximity to the main stage.
