  • X-Marks the Spot is an interactive experience with sounds and voices, and touchable and scented props. A low-light setting and/or the use of blindfolds gently encourages audience members not to rely on their sense of sight, but instead to tune-in to their other four senses to experience EST, “Extra Sensory Theatre.” EST aims to give children insight into what it is like to encounter the world as a person who is blind or low vision.

    Following up on her successful Red Kite Project productions for children with autism, and informed by her work with LV students at Otis Elementary School, Jacqueline Russell draws inspiration for this new production from a Victorian children’s novel by E. Nesbit, “Five Children & It.” X-Marks tells the clever and funny story of a family of young adventurers who discover a mischievous wishing fairy in the sand—only to learn the old adage, “be careful what you wish for.”

    *If you have special seating accommodations, please inform the Box Office 72 hours before your performance.
