What child doesn’t love playing with brown cardboard moving boxes? They’re perfect for climbing and hiding inside, and they can morph into magical forts, homes, vehicles, even robots. With a little creativity, the possibilities are endless.
Red Kite, Brown Box is a live theater experience that leads children on the autism spectrum on an imaginative journey where simple cardboard boxes transform into a magical world full of treasures and joyous play. Conceived and directed by CCT Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell, Red Kite, Brown Box is a transformative educational experience created for young people with autism and sensory sensitivities, their families and caregivers. Before coming to the theater, each child and adult is sent a Social Story that walks families through the experience of attending the show, from arriving at the location to the people they’ll meet, to the adventure itself. A limited number of tickets is sold for each performance to keep the experience focused, intimate and in tune with the particular needs of each child.
