DescriptionWe describe a regional theatre's recent productions of "A Christmas Carol" on stage and in virtual reality — using real-time motion capture, game engine rendering, and a new multi-user VR platform. We discuss the process, challenges, and creative decisions behind these shows, with an eye toward future theatrical productions.
