A CHOOSICAL MUSICAL
- By ARLENE WINNICK
During the past year, The Geffen Stayhouse has produced a creative series of sold out interactive experiences that audiences have thoroughly enjoyed. This month their focus is on young audiences (ages 6-9) with “The Door You Never Saw Before: A Choosical Musical.” This one-of-a kind Zoom-platform show allows children to plot their own adventures as they enter a magical door and try to save a faraway city from an evil villain known as “The Stench.”
How it Works: Each “The Door You Never Saw Before” ticket allows an entire household to participate even though the child (or children) is technically in charge of the action. Each child is shipped in advance a suitcases filled with puzzles and special items to help them interact with the onscreen action, music and characters. (One suitcase is included in the ticket price but additional ones can be ordered). An added bonus – Grandparents (that’s me) and other family/friends can also Zoom in and watch the show from anywhere “alongside” their favorite youngsters with a discounted viewing-only ticket. “Matt Schatz (book, music, lyrics) and Katie Lindsay (director) have created an amazingly fun, entertaining and unique experience for kids that feeds their imagination and takes them on a great adventure during a time when they need it more than ever,” said Geffen Playhouse Artistic Director Matt Shakman. This choosical musical journey is a don’t miss family experience!
