The Red Kite Project creates theatrical adventures and dynamic learning experiences for children with autism. Red Kite is a branch of Chicago Children’s Theatre, and was the brainchild of CCT’s artistic director Jacqueline Russell as part of her ongoing commitment to serving children with special needs, especially autism.
Camp Red Kite is a summer arts half-day camp for children on the autism spectrum.
Red Kite Adventures are multi-sensory theatrical experiences that incorporate into each performance the desires, needs, and whims unique to each child who attends.
Red Kite also offers classroom “Drama Time” residencies, along with Teacher Development and Artist-Training Workshops. For more information on these or other Red Kite opportunities, contact:
Access and Inclusion Manager Alex Mauney.
