WHAT IS IT?
The Wizards Of Oakwood Drive is a live, interactive, online performance for young audiences taking place on Zoom.
Two sibling wizards perform spells in a winner-take-all contest, and with a little help from parents in advance of the show, magic will happen in your own home. A short list of items and simple instructions on where to place them will set the stage for the sorcery, and during the performance, the battling wizards perform magic which send kids on a treasure hunt. The panel of kid judges then vote to determine—once and for all—who the best wizard is on Oakwood Drive!
Up to eight children at a time participate from all over the world…all you need is a wifi connection and a few household items to make the wizardry happen.
PARENTS, YOU ARE ACCOMPLICES TO THE SORCERY!
You’ll hide everyday items around your home that will bring this magical adventure to life. Most or all of these you’ll probably already have, and specific instructions will be provided for the setup. Remember, shhhhh. Once you purchase your ticket, you will be emailed instructions on what to do with the items!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
★ AN ACE OF SPADES PLAYING CARD
★ A BALLOON
★ A PIN OR NEEDLE (anything to pop a balloon)
★ ONE RED OBJECT, ONE BLUE OBJECT (each that you can hold in your hand and be seen when held up to the screen)
★ A BOOK (printed, like a novel, and something that you don’t mind writing in)
★ SCOTCH TAPE
★ A SMALL BOX THAT CAN CLOSE (best if it can be locked with a key, but if not, that’s fine.)
★ YOUR KID’S FAVORITE SNACK TREAT (candy bar, chips, gummy bears, carrots, whatever can fit in that box)
★ A MUG (Any mug will do)
★ A SPOON
★ A PLASTIC BAG OF SPICES
★ A SPECIAL GIFT THAT YOUR KID WILL LOVE (could be money, a paint set, an online gift certificate, whatever you like. Be creative!)
After purchasing your ticket, you’ll be provided with simple instructions on how to set up the items around your home. It takes around 20 minutes, and should be arranged just prior to the performance. And remember…shhhhhh!
“Absolutely enchanting! Enchantment is possible even indoors…a lockdown is no bar to adventure. Which is a really nice reminder of what theater can do, even remotely.”
