Filament Theatre’s FORTS: Build Your Adventure and FORTS: Adult Night

Chicago’s Filament Theatre returns with its hit immersive play experience for families FORTS: Build Your Own Adventure, in which Filament transforms into a play space for children and parents to build new worlds using cardboard boxes, sheets, clotheslines and more, November 19, 2022 – January 8, 2023. And back by popular demand, FORTS: Adult Night, a BYOB version specifically for adults to reconnect with the imagination of their youth, returns for four Friday evenings only, Dec. 9, 2022 – January 6, 2023. These two productions kick off Filament’s 15th Anniversary of creating work for, by, and with young audiences.

FORTS: Build Your Own Adventure, conceived by Filament Theatre founder Julie Ritchey welcomes families to build, imagine and play together in an interactive playspace. With theatrical design elements of sound and lights working together to support creative play, families are swept away in the adventure. The

FORTS: Adult Night Experience allows audiences to experience a world of play and creation as Filament Theatre transforms into a fort building fantasy. FORTS: Adult Night is a version of Filament’s family-friendly experience that is specifically for adults to reconnect with the imagination of their youth and dive back into the world of childhood. We will have BYOB Adult nights every Friday night of the run at 7pm. Participants in FORTS: Adult Night must be 21 or older. Performances are BYOB.
