Red Kite By The Sea

2012 Local Grants

Chicago Children’s Theatre
Chicago, Illinois
United States


Red Kite by the Sea, an interactive theatrical performance for children with autism spectrum disorder, will continue Chicago Children’s Theatre’s commitment to producing theatrical programming created exclusively for children with autism. The success of Red Kite performances is largely due to the development of a holistic experience that takes into account the specific needs of each child and can adapt to them, something the company does in a variety of ways. The Social Story is a guide previewing the Red Kite experience. Two different versions are available – one for children attending the show and another for caregivers, utilizing video clips, pictures, and voiceovers to introduce children to the characters, plot, and performance environment; the latter describes the atmosphere, structure, and timing, so adults can determine if the Red Kite production is appropriate for their child(ren).
