Get ready for some PG-rated fun with nature this Sunday. Mark your calendar and Bikeshare over to the US Botanic Garden!
A world premiere Kennedy Center co-commission with the U.S. Botanic Garden
Created by Jonathan Shmidt Chapman and Drew Petersen from Trusty Sidekick Theater Company
Directed by Drew Petersen
Meet Benjamin Peale, a botanist who claims to be a time traveler from the year 2041. He needs your help to stop a critical discovery from happening in the U.S. Botanic Garden–one that will bring catastrophe and destruction to the world as we know it! Help him find the mythic “Cerulean Time Capsule” before it’s too late. Be alert. Be vigilant. Time is of the essence if you want to change the course of the space-time continuum in the name of botanical security. Don’t miss this immersive and interactive theatrical event that whisks small groups all around the Conservatory on a botanical adventure of a lifetime. Your future self is depending on you!
