Things are not as they appear! When Simon finds an unusually odd pair of glasses, he is surprised by their extraordinary ability when he puts them on. With the unlikely help of some old, tired and washed up superheroes, he can suddenly see right through people’s words and into the heart of what they are feeling. As he tries to navigate the world with his new superpower and the help of his quirky new friends, he learns a powerful lesson about friendship, empathy, and what the world needs now. As Simon begins to see as the superheroes do, he is brought into the race against time to save the world.
Check in and meet at the picnic pavilion behind the Chautauqua Auditorium. Our hikes are usually at a moderate level/pace and last no more than 2 hours. When you first arrive, you will be greeted by your hiking guide who will lead the way down the trail to each scene location. Once you arrive at a scene location, you can sit back and relax and watch a scene from the production. Once the scene is complete, we all gather our things and hike to the next location.
During an Arts in the Open production, you will be hiking along a moderate trail. We encourage all audience members to wear proper hiking attire and shoes. We also recommend you bring:
Weather appropriate clothing, water, snacks, hats, umbrellas, sunscreen, and blankets to sit on and/or lightweight camping chairs. There will be water and granola bars available for a suggested donation.
