The Iconic sign rises over the "Valley of Ashes" section of EXPLORE

EXPLORE: The Great Gatsby will open officially at Noon on Thursday, January 15th (revised date).  We've been delving, researching, and construction is well underway.  Look forward to daily updates as all the things we have been collecting in piles (real & virtual) start manifesting for the big day.

Tacoma Little Theatre's production will open the next week on January 23rd, and by then we'll have presented a goodly portion of the novel live in voice.

We are pleased to announce that Kayden Oconnell will do the honors at the inaugural presentation, with many of the storytellers that Seanchai is known for following in subsequent sessions.

Here is the Preliminary Session Schedule (updated as of 1.12.15).  Please note that times and dates are subject to change, as are the voice performers.  we also may be adding some discussions and tours, so stay tuned!

Look for updates as New User Sessions on Saturday mornings will also be scheduled for people interested in The Great Gatsby, but new to moving about in virtual worlds.

There are also considerations on going for an in-world Q & A with folks from Tacoma Little Theatre about their production.  The fun is only just beginning!

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” 
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
