Please Note

ALIEN/NATION is an immersive theatrical production, comprised of two related yet unique experiences—ALIEN/NATION—WALKING which can be enjoyed by foot and ALIEN/NATION—DRIVING which can be enjoyed by car—in multiple locations around Williamstown. Each is a stand-alone piece and can be seen by purchasing tickets on separate evenings and in any order. Technology is a large component to this production. Bring an adventurous spirit! Patrons will be required to download a free app to experience this production. Further instructions will be emailed to patrons at least 48 hours prior to their performance.

ALIEN/NATION—DRIVING must be experienced with at least two people in their personal vehicle (a driver and a navigator). Vehicles must have a functioning FM radio, auxiliary cable, and two functioning headlights. At least one of the participants in the vehicle must have a fully-charged personal smartphone with a data plan that will need to connect to the car stereo. The vehicle’s Bluetooth-enabled system or Apple CarPlay/Android Auto technology will not work for this production. Patrons will only exit their vehicles for Act 2, and they must wear a mask and maintain six feet of social distancing at all times during this portion. Patrons are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather (in the event of rain, umbrellas cannot be used during the performance).

For ALIEN/NATION—WALKING, every participant must bring a fully-charged personal smartphone with a data plan, as well as wired headphones, and any necessary headphone jack adapter (if the smartphone requires one). Wireless earbuds are not recommended because Bluetooth connectivity can impede the enjoyment of the performance. Patrons are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather, as they will be walking and standing outside for a couple of hours (in the event of rain, umbrellas cannot be used during the performance). It is recommended patrons travel lightly and leave large bags at home to keep hands and arms as free as possible. Where there are steps, stairs, and uneven ground, alternate accessible pathways will be available. Patrons will be walking in small groups of up to 15 people with audience members who may not be in their household; patrons must wear a mask and maintain six feet of social distancing at all times.

Rain Policy: This production will perform in light rain, and the Festival may postpone the curtain time slightly so that the show is able to perform. If the Festival must cancel a performance before the show begins, then the Box Office will reach out to patrons directly within 48 hours and try to exchange them into another performance (subject to ticket availability). If the Box Office is unable to accommodate an exchange, patrons will be offered an opportunity to donate their tickets back to the Festival, or if requested, receive a refund. If a performance is stopped and cancelled due to weather during/after the first intermission, then the performance will be considered fulfilled, and unfortunately, WTF will not be able to exchange or refund tickets.
