We are thrilled to present the world premiere of RED KITE TREASURE ADVENTURE!
All performances will be held in Chicago Children's Theatre's new home, The Station at 100 S. Racine Ave. To reserve tickets, please complete the information below.
Red Kite Treasure Adventure is an interactive theatrical experience with live music and sensory moments created specifically for young people on the autism spectrum. Audience members will join the chivalrous Oswald and his precocious siblings as they attempt to replace a priceless family heirloom. The children's journey to track down a rare Chinese vase leads them through a hole in the Earth to Chinatown where they arrive just in time for New Year's festivities, dragon puppets, fireworks, lanterns, and shadow play. After conquering their fears (and a sea serpent named Gong Gong) our heroes return home with a newfound appreciation for bravery, honesty, and family tradition. Inspired by characters from Edith Nesbit's The Story of the Treasure Seekers, this intimate production creates a safe and exciting theatrical environment for young people with autism and their families.
Each performance is limited to an audience of 10 CHILDREN, each accompanied by a parent or caregiver. We can also accomodate a limited number of observers (other parents, siblings, etc.) in each performance.
Tickets are PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN. Our suggested donation is $10. Additional observer tickets are available. Once we receive your registration, we will contact you to confirm the reservation. All registrants will receive a "Social Story" closer to the performance date, which provides an overview of the experience and can be used to help prepare children for attendance.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to make sure you find the new location and to check in with the Red Kite Concierge.
