The Red Kite Friendship Tour

Tailored to the unique needs of young people on the autism spectrum, a Red Kite Friendship Tour is a 30-minute multi-sensory experience that encourages audience members to show up fully as themselves as they enjoy a theatrical performance. Highly trained performers gently guide audience members through the participatory aspects of the performance. 

The current Friendship Tour features the story and songs of Red Kite, Green Mountain. Hike with us up the mountain and make friends with all of Green Mountain’s forest animals through song and participatory sensory activities!

The Red Kite Friendship Tour has performed at libraries, parks, museums, cafes, outdoor venues, and more! To learn more about pricing and available dates for bringing the tour to your community, fill out the tour inquiry form below.

What is it like to attend a Red Kite Friendship Tour performance?

For many youth on the autism spectrum, the unknown is especially discomforting. Here is what a young audience member can expect from a Friendship Tour performance:

  • The show will come to my school, library, or community center. I will sit on the floor in the audience.
  • The show is part performance, part hands-on workshop. I’ll get to listen to music, touch the pretend animals, and help the characters in the story.
  • During this show, I can move, laugh, talk, sing, and interact with the artists. I don’t have to sit still and keep quiet.
  • The performers will tell me when they need my help. I can choose when I want to participate or not.
  • The music and noises will be gentle and there are no bright lights to hurt my eyes.
  • I’ll get to read a social story before the tour arrives so that I know what to expect.
  • I can be myself at the Friendship Tour!
