Weis Center Stage


Suggested for ages 4-7
Run time: 50 minutes; no intermission

This enchanting and interactive performance allows audience members to take a journey to ancient China, following the footprints left by a panda. The panda's "house" is in a forest as large as all of China. This imaginary journey explores China's stories, traditions and culture. Along with the panda, the audience will discover and interact with the five elements of nature - wood, fire, earth, metal and water - encountering bamboo forests, fireworks, kites and more. In this sensory and interactive experience, the stage comes to life with innovative projection, colorful images and playful sound.

6 p.m. - sensory friendly public performance

To give everyone in our community the opportunity to experience the joy of attending a live performance, we will present a sensory-friendly performance as part this engagement. This performance is designed specifically for patrons with sensory sensitivity to enjoy with their families. What sensory friendly means:

  • Reduction of sound levels, particularly loud or startling sounds.
  • Reduction of overwhelming stage lighting.
  • Low ambient lighting in the theater throughout the performance so patrons are able to see should they need to move around or exit the theater.
  • Patrons can talk and move around the theater as much as they wish during the performance.
  • Designated break spaces will be available for those who might feel overwhelmed and need a break from the performance.
