TheatreWorks is committed to making theatre accessible to all, including our community’s children and families living with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other sensory and social sensitivities, and we are delighted to be offering our first sensory-sensitive performance.

Around the World in 80 Days
Wednesday, Dec 27 at 7:30pm
Lucie Stern Theatre, Palo Alto

Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful valet in the original “Great Race,” circling the globe in an 1870s alive with danger, romance, and comic surprises at every turn. In the hilariously theatrical style of The 39 Steps, five actors portray dozens of characters in a thrilling race against time and treachery. Grab your family, and your passport, for an ingenious, imaginative expedition around the world!
(This show is best enjoyed by children ages 6 and up.)
