NEW YORK, NY (March 23, 2016) — This spring, families will have the chance to embark on Lincoln Center’s first-ever site-specific, interactive adventure, and a chance to experience the iconic performing arts center in a brand new way. Lincoln Center’s LC Kids program presents the world premiere of Meet Me at the Fountain, the first in a new series of immersive experiences, and part of Lincoln Center’s commitment to children’s programming. The first adventure of the new Meet Me at the Fountain series is Episode I: The Canary Flies at Midnight, and will have three weekend performance dates, Saturday, April 30, Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22.


Meet Me at the Fountain is an original creation, taking participants on an adventure throughout the Lincoln Center campus. Participants join the ranks of The Eyes of the Fountain, an underground league of cultural crime fighters who keep Lincoln Center’s iconic stages safe from sabotage, and help unravel a diabolical plot to unhinge an international opera diva before her big debut. The adventure lasts 30 minutes, with 10 sessions on each date, for a group of up 14 participants per session. The audience works together with actors at iconic locations around Lincoln Center to solve the mystery and save the opera star. Meet Me at the Fountain is recommended for ages 7 and up.


Meet Me at the Fountain is LC Kids first original commission, and is the creation of Drew Petersen, who has written the script and directs the interactive production. Petersen is also the playwright behind Up and Away, a Lincoln Center Education commission designed for children on the autism spectrum. He is also the Associate Artistic Director of the New York-based Trusty Sidekick Theater Company, known for its bold, and original theater productions for young people and their families.
