Vigilance is an immersive theater group dedicated to creating intimate, experiential productions in Pittsburgh. Drawing inspiration from high art and pop culture alike, Vigilance is determined to explore the boundaries and possibilities of the growing immersive theater movement.
Vigilance Theater Group was founded by Sean Collier, Dana Custer, Ariella Furman, and Renee Rabenold. Since 2018 Vigilance has produced original immersive productions in site-specific locations, mini interactive theatrical experiences, and yearly Vigilance Cabaret Fundraisers.
The central themes of our works have emerged organically. We have created conversations on the effects of power structures, the inhumanity of class divides, the haunting effects of violence, and the challenges of action in an era of injustice. While our works are meant as entertainment, we constantly seek to ensure that the messages and meanings are clear and always in pursuit of encouraging more equitable worldviews in our audiences.

Our Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Vigilance Theater Group is committed to sharing the stage with a diverse group of performers from the Pittsburgh region. We strive to make inclusiveness and equity goals in our productions; while we know that we, like all theater companies, always have room to improve, we will continue to ensure that our cast and crew members are representative of our community. At Vigilance, that also means inviting and encouraging the involvement and professional development of performers and crew members from outside traditional theatrical backgrounds. We believe that Pittsburgh is full of talent, and that talent does not only lie inside the theatrical community; we will continue to search in non-traditional performance spaces for new collaborators.
