An Epic Tale of Scale

An Epic Tale of Scale

Music and Lyrics by Gabe Ruiz

About the Show
An immersive, interactive theatrical event unlike anything you’ve ever experienced!

In the spring, The Station itself transforms into an all-immersive, two-story theatrical environment, totally unique to Chicagoland, created and directed by Henry Wishcamper and Jo Cattell, collaboratively designed by CCT Community Programs Artistic Director Frank Maugeri, with original music by Gabriel Ruiz.

Think The Magic School Bus meets Sleep No More, and you’re on the right track.

Audiences are limited to groups of 20, with entry times staggered every 15 minutes for a fun, funky, two-story adventure through the human body, outer space, and beyond. Along the way, voyagers young and old will encounter costumed corpuscles, a collection of curiosities from The Field Museum, art activities, a race between parents and kids (or between the young at heart) through an anatomical obstacle course, mind benders, original music in every space, and maybe even a cosmic dance party.

*If you require special participatory accommodations, please contact Guest Services as early as possible.
