Join us for a special fundraiser and preview of our latest immersive, The Forest of Everywhere. Built for children on the autism spectrum and their families, this fully accessible adventure is a new theatrical experience that invites children into an enchanted forest where they play without the rules and restrictions of traditional theater.

First, let out your inner child and explore this magical wonderland. Afterwards, we’ll host a reception where you can grab a drink and some light fare, chat with the creative team, and learn more about how your generosity helps bring more kids into this wonderful experience.

A portion of your ticket will provide:

• Tickets to The Forest of Everywhere for families who need them most!
• Trained immersive theater guide for children who need one-on-one accommodations.

About The Forest of Everywhere:

This fully accessible experience takes your kids out of their seats and into a real-life adventure. They’ll explore an open-world environment, have one-on-one interactions, and play without the restrictions and rules of traditional theater. Sitting is not a requirement. Being quiet for long periods of time is not a requirement. The Forest of Everywhere was built with children on the autism spectrum and their families in mind, and is a place where all kids can be themselves. Click here for tickets and more info.
