CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: Theater, Making Music: from The Blueprint

A four-person ensemble from the South African Magnet Theatre explore the natural material of wood—asking what it can do and what we can do with it. Strange animals and stories magically come to life through the live animation of forest wood shapes. With original songs and limitless acoustic possibilities, KNOCK! is an interactive theater experience for young audiences, who are invited to sing along with performers as they investigate the creative potential of a common substance.

Includes pre-show workshop and post-show activity


To better support the needs and enjoyment of neural atypical audience members, school-time performances of KNOCK! will be relaxed performances. Modifications will include elimination of blackouts and sudden theatrical cues; maintaining moderate house lighting through the performance; lowering the overall volume of sound elements; allowing for audience vocalization and movement; and allowing for patron exits and entrances whenever needed. For more information on Relaxed Performances, please visit Include Arts.

Leadership support for programs for students with special needs provided by the Joseph LeRoy and Ann C. Warner Fund.


Major support for school-time performances provided by the Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation and the David L. Klein, Jr. Foundation.
