The Rizing first rose last Halloween season and now, a year later, it returns to haunt the floorboards of a home in Oak Bluffs that for the moment will remain nameless, the better to keep the reader safe.

But for those who are prepared — mentally, emotionally, spiritually, scarily — the address will be provided upon ticket reservation.

Why the mystery? Because it is the season for mystery and mayhem, and for stories and performances that evoke the timeless nature of past and future lives.

Rizing is presented by Abby Bender and Jesse Jason, with hour-long performances on Oct. 21, 22, 28, 29 and 31 at 6 p.m., 7:15 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.; and on Oct. 23, 30 and Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

The show is billed as an evening of immersive storytelling, with a few guests attending each show and walking through a sprawling Oak Bluffs home where things go bump in the night. Characters interact through dance, theatre and sound.

The cast includes Abby Bender and Jesse Jason, along with Hannah Burbidge, Molly Coogan, Scott Crawford, Lucy Grinnan, Laura Hall, Jesse Jason, Roberta Kirn, Claire Page, Katie Perez and Xavier Powers.

Guest voices include Justen Ahren, Brooke Ditchfield, Scott Hershowitz, Brian Hall, Chelsea McCarthy, Rob Myers, Niki Patton, Katherine Reid and Cassie Tunick, with video by Danielle Mulcahy.
