Showing October 29 through November 20 at Imagination Stage
Imagination Stage, a 43 year-old, award-winning professional theatre for children located in Bethesda, MD, debuts S.P.I.E.S. 2: Flight of the Hawk from October 29-November 20.
For ages 5-10, the show incorporates multimedia, interactive puzzles, and laugh-out-loud improvisation as audiences choose their own adventure–all in the name of helping elite Spy Team 7 save the world.
The suspenseful, action-packed filmed segments interact seamlessly with the live action in the theatre, making for a uniquely original and engaging experience. Think “escape room” for children: the stakes are high, but so is the fun quotient. The show is conceived and co-directed by Strother Gaines, who emphasizes that “the kids are in control of this adventure. The facilitator character, Pat, guides them through choices, but at the end of the day, the kids are in charge.” Gaines includes STEM-focused puzzles and problems the kids will be tasked with solving collaboratively in the theatre. “We recognize that, post-pandemic, kids are re-learning how to be with each other in a group and work together. Each child will choose their way to contribute to the action, whether from their seat or by volunteering to work with Pat on the stage.” Imagination Stage is grateful to be Education Partners with Port Discovery on this new and exciting production!
Performances are Saturday at 11:00 and Sunday at 11:00 and 1:00. Get tickets at imaginationstage.org or by calling 301-280-1660.
