About the show

Red Kite Treasure Adventure is an interactive theater experience with live music and sensory moments created exclusively for young people on the autism spectrum (suggested age is 4 to 14).  Audience members will join the chivalrous Oswald and his precocious siblings on their harrowing journey to track down a rare Chinese vase.  Their adventure leads them to Chinatown where they arrive just in time for New Year's festivities, dragon puppets, fireworks, and lanterns.  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.
