Adventure Theatre MTC(ATMTC), brings to the stage its fourth and final world premiere of the 2015-2016 Season with Jumanji, directed by Serge Seiden, director of the Helen Hayes Award winning Charlotte’s Web and Helen Hayes nominated A Little House Christmas. Based on the Caldecott Medal winning book by Chris Van Allsburg, the production will feature a 4-D audience immersive experience.
On a dull day, Judy and Peter find a mysterious old board game. One live lion, an erupting volcano, and some destructive monkeys later, the children are plunged into an experience they’ll never forget. Will they ever finish this mysterious magic game and claim Jumanji?!
Michael J. Bobbitt, Artistic Director of Adventure Theatre MTC, adds, “I’ve always be a huge fan of Chris Van Allsburg’s work, and I am thrilled to be the first children’s theatre to bring this story to life for DC families. Sandy Eskin and I have worked diligently to ensure fans of the book will be thrilled. With a stampede, a monsoon, monkeys, and a volcano eruption in the theatre, audiences will go through the suspense and fun of the board game just like Judy and Peter.”
The show will run June 17- August 28, 2016. Tickets are $19.50 each and can be purchased online at www.adventuretheatre-mtc.org or by calling 301.634.2270. Jumanji is recommended for ages 4 and up due to jungle suspense. Tickets are $19.50 each with group and field trip rates available. Children under the age of 1 are free.
