BKBXKids! @ The PIT Presents:
Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) celebrates storytelling beyond words with Destination: Everywhere. Set to contemporary music and guided by a speaking emcee, this hour-long collection of stories includes a tale of unlikely friendship with a giant, the multitasking troubles of a superhero on date night, and an intergalactic odyssey that won’t be complete without the audience’s help.
After the performance, families learn how to mime in a mini-mime workshop with the cast! Destination: Everywhere is a production of BKBXKids!, the family programming wing of BKBX.
We are proud to partner with The Peoples Improv Theater to bring this wild ride to audiences on select Saturdays @ 3 PM from February to April 2018! With a special relaxed performance on April 14th! (read more)
