Inspired by iconic children’s book Harold and The Purple Crayon, ZOOOM channels the same philosophy: a child who makes sense of their world through art. We follow the main character as she begins a transformational journey with light and discovers that the dark is a magical place. Adventures happen and the audience gets involved to help a lost star find its way home. Using original music, lasers, and projections, ZOOOM is a beautiful and immersive show that explores what dreams are made of. Combining old school whimsy with state-of-the-art technology, ZOOOM is an enchanting story of a child alone in her bedroom, unable to sleep, and curious to understand.
