Make a Scene! is a live-action scenario festival right here in the Twin Cities. Inspired by the format of larp festivals in the Nordic countries, Make a Scene! was a huge success last year, in large part because of the incredible support it received from the Larp House community. Make a Scene! would love to continue this relationship into the new year, and feature even more Larp House larpwrights at this year’s festival.
Learn more about submitting a scenario to Make a Scene!
Deadline: February 28
If writing a larp isn’t your thing right now, you can still mark your calendar for August 7–9, when we will premiere these scenarios at Make a Scene!, and Like the Facebook page for more information.
It’s time for summer elections! We need volunteers to nominate themselves for all offices. Larp House members, check your inbox for details!

The hubbub of the holidays is behind us and we are pleased to announce our tentative Winter 2019 event schedule! We are still working out the details for each of these, and the lineup is subject to change. Watch this space for future announcements about these events!
We still have room for a couple more submissions. Contact the Creative Director if you have an idea.

The Creative Director is now accepting submissions for first quarter programming. The connecting theme for this season (January to March) will be:
Use of the theme is encouraged (although not mandatory). You may interpret the theme however you like. Is this about resilience in the face of hardship? Encore presentations of popular larps? Whatever inspires you!
We are especially interested in getting submissions from women, LGBTQIA folx, and people of color.
As always, no prior larp organizing experience is necessary. We will connect you with a member of the Education Committee for help with running a great larp.
If you have an idea for an event you would like to run, please fill out our handy event submission form by 21 January. The Creative Director will review the pitches, and will announce a schedule by the end of January.
