Description

Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) is bringing its unique brand of family fun to the virtual world through a Zoom-centered production featuring Dallas clown artists Slappy and Monday. Dubbed the My Faraway Adventure Kit, families will purchase online access, receive their very own box filled with tools and clues in the mail, and take a very up close and personal trip to fun and interesting places around the world.

Aiming to give families the experience of travel while breaking out of the boxed-in COVID feeling, the investment is only $70 per family and includes one box mailed to the household, but more boxes can be mailed to the same household for $16 each. (Larger groups have the opportunity to buy all 25 seats in an exclusive gathering for $2000.) The team promises that the experience will evoke screams of laughter from everyone and teach very valuable lessons.

Proceeds from this fundraiser/production will benefit the Dallas Children’s Theater Brighter Days Sustainability Campaign and provide much-needed support to help DCT continue offering virtual experiences during these COVID times and also help the organization prepare for a return to in-person performances.

Running at 70 minutes, with a limit of 25 families participating in each performance, My Faraway Adventure Kit is perfect for ages 4–10. Immersive and interactive, it is meant to be enjoyed as a family, with at least one adult present.

Beginning on Friday, November 6, My Faraway Adventure Kit performances will be running every weekend in November and spots during the 20 shows can be reserved at dct.org/adventure.

Internationally-renowned clown artists and DCT favorites, Dick Monday and Tiffany Riley (better known as Slappy and Monday,) are excited to take families on this super-secret globetrotting mission.

Slappy and Monday have been staples in the lobby before almost every sensory-friendly performances for several years now. Riley and Monday are the co-founders of Laughter League, a non-profit often focused on spreading laughter in places that need it most. They’ve acquired a new fan-following among DCT regulars through their hilarious antics during DCT’s virtual Brain Breaks, and are looking forward to taking children on a journey around the world.
