Snow Day (Seesaw Theatre)

Our Goal: We’ve already reached our goal of $1,000! THANK YOU. We’ve stretched our goal to $1,200 to allow us to provide take home props to our students at Park School, not just to students who come to the show at Northwestern. This will allow us to give the students tangible, take home memories of their time playing with us during Snow Day and is essential to their ability to return to the world and share their experience with loved ones.

 

What Seesaw Is: Seesaw Theatre is a student theatre board at Northwestern University that works to create sensory-friendly and interactive theatre experiences for audiences with developmental differences.

 

Multi-Sensory: Our shows are made to embrace all of the senses, not just sight and sound. Get ready to walk into a brand new world.

 

One on One: When you bring a guest to a Seesaw Theatre production, you can sit back and relax, as an adventure guide acts as their liaison to the show.

 

Safe: Our shows are designed under strict supervision from our design chair, a student who spends extensive time researching the needs of neuro-diverse communities, and are made to be safe and accessible for our audience.

 

Free: We believe that theater and art are basic human rights, and as such we do not charge families, audience members, or classrooms to experience our work.

 

Our Goal

Our winter event is Snow Day and it will include lunch, a craft, and a 30-minute theatrical production, all centered around the idea of what a snowy day in the winter sounds, feels, and looks like. The production is written, produced, designed, directed, and organized entirely by Northwestern students who are passionate about creating art for audiences with developmental differences. The production will run for two days on the Northwestern campus and will then spend three weeks in residency at Park School in Evanston. During this residency, the performance will reach all 70 students at the school, including classes from kindergarten through high school.

 

We are trying to raise $1,000 to fund the entirety of our project. This money will go toward safe and dynamic props, sets, costumes, sound equipment, and take home goodies for the audience members who experience the show!
