THERE'S TREASURE IN NYC!

TREASURE IN NYC is a 45-minute multi-sensory, interactive theatrical experience specifically designed for people with developmental delays. We've created a safe space where eight performers take a maximum of 10 "Junior Adventure Guides" on an imaginary treasure hunt through New York City using props, costumes, projections, song, movement, a map for reference, and most importantly: their imagination!

A DIFFERENT KIND OF SHOW

This 45-minute immersive musical is tailored completely to each participant's individual differences, giving them an opportunity to experience a live theater performance without the restrictive boundaries of a traditional show. There are no walls between the performers and the audience — all are invited to participate in the show through vocal and physical interaction, and are assigned a performer "buddy" who will stay with them through the entire experience. Our goal is to make theater accessible to anyone!
 

A DIFFERENT KIND OF CAST 

Our dedicated performers undergo special training in a variety of disciplines, including Autism sensitivity, in order to be able to connect with our unique audience members. They're equipped to be completely responsive to what's happening in the moment with each child, without stopping the show or excluding anyone. Cast members can work as a team to adjust the show as needed, whether it's turning the lights up, bringing the noise level down, or moving past particular segments to accommodate each individual's needs.
