Spellbound Theatre: WINK

What happens when we go to sleep? Spellbound Theatre’s Wink is an imaginative and multi-disciplinary performance that explores dreams from the perspective of a young child and her bear.  Blending shadow puppetry, physical theatre, and animation, this unique show is designed to engage and inspire the very youngest audience members. Inspired by the classic poem, “Wynken, Blynken and Nod,” Wink is ideal for kids age 0-7, but can be enjoyed by all ages.


Spellbound Theatre

Spellbound Theatre is New York's award-winning theater devoted to creating original, multi-disciplinary performances for very young audiences.  Spellbound produces original plays for audiences ages 0-5 and provides early childhood education programs and community events for young children.  We believe that young people deserve sophisticated and innovative art experiences and are constantly inspired by the complex and imaginative world of young children.

Now in its tenth year of operation, Spellbound produces original plays for audiences ages 0-5 and conducts early childhood education programs and community events for families with young children.  Spellbound Theatre has performed to sold-out family audiences as a multi-year company-in-residence at the Old Stone House in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and have been 2014-15, 2016-17, and 2018-19 New Victory Theater LabWorks Artists in Residence.  Spellbound Theater is the American Alliance for Theater and Education’s 2017 Winifred Ward Zeta Phi Eta Outstanding New Children’s Theater Company Award.  In recognition of its innovative work in theatre for young audiences, Spellbound Theatre has received multiple grant awards from The Jim Henson Foundation and The NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council).

Spellbound develops quality performing arts for young children through three strands: local family outreach programs, in-school performance and residency programs, and mainstage/national touring performances. Spellbound's ensemble of artists includes storytellers, puppeteers, physical theater performers, musicians, and visual artists, all collaborating to create immersive, engaging, and imaginative worlds for young children and their adults. Spellbound Theater will begin touring their unique performances nationwide in 2018.
