Cityscape
Presented by Jumping Jack Theatre (Pittsburgh, PA)

Written by Jumping Jack Theatre; Directed by the Cast
Jumping Jack Theater creates new works for Autistic audiences and the autism community in a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment. When a wily pigeon flies off with M.C.’s most prized treasure, she must leave the comfort of home and cross the big and busy Cityscape to get it back.  From reaching the top of a skyscraper to chasing down a dump truck, audiences help M.C. solve problems and overcome fears as she safely navigates this new environment. “Cityscape” invites the audience to participate in the action via creative movement, music, and sensory play and incorporates social skill and communication supports. Recommended for grades K-5.
