You played, you cried. There were carefree days of crafts and naps. Then, it was time to grow up… What if you could go back to being 5? Bring your inner child to this immersive playgroup experience for grown-ups. Follow the teacher as you craft, build, connect with classmates, and rediscover a sense of wonder in a world full of toys, paint, and pillows. Relying on the full participation of the audience, Big Kid Kindergarten asks us to connect in playful and poignant ways. Don’t forget to pack a snack! (For adults, with all-ages performances Wednesdays, Sundays.)
