“Red Kite, Blue Sky”

RKBS-dates2-1024x496

Chicago Children’s Theatre and The Red Kite Project are thrilled to announce upcoming performances of the newest Red Kite Adventure: Red Kite Blue Sky. This theatrical, multi-sensory performance is designed specifically for children with autism and their families.

At Red Kite, Blue Sky, children embark on a bird watching adventure to the City in the Clouds where the Owl, Blue Jay, Hummingbird, and Hawk reveal the mysteries of Grandfather Sky. While enjoying the multi-sensory experience from soft cloud pillows, children help the seasons change in the sky with an interactive rain dance and a maypole rainbow parade. With the winter comes the snow, and with the snow — a snow ball fight! When we are tuckered out, we’ll serenade the emerging stars with a lullaby and create a new constellation that will shine on forever.WEB-CCT-Red-Kite_2
