Audience suggestions will help create character attributes, storylines, and more in this never-the-same-twice production that helps teach audiences about setting goals, overcoming obstacles, establishing friendships, and being unique individuals.

“Allowing kids to participate in this hands-on jam portion of the show helps them grasp the concepts and themes of the performance they just saw in an unforgettable way,” says Thorp
