Whoosh!

“These artists understand and respect their audiences as co-explorers and the adventure that ensues in Whoosh! is utterly joyous”

Jenny Simpson, CEO Awesome Children’s Festival

Hop on board our spaceship and get ready for blast off!

Calling all budding astronauts!  Become a pilot, engineer or navigator as we whoosh across the galaxy on an interstellar adventure for the whole family.

Join our crew to explore outer space, taste space food, experience hyperdrive and travel all the way to the mysterious Planet X. We’ll have to work as a team to repair the ship and return to Earth.

Whoosh! is a new interactive multi-sensory adventure that puts children with disabilities in the Captain's Chair! This highly-tailored production is suitable for children with a broad range of access needs aged 5+, including those with multiple and complex needs and those on the autism spectrum.

With an impressive set and pioneering use of technology, including a new digital app to deliver pre-show materials, this is Sensorium Theatre’s most ambitious production to date. Developed over three years, we’ve refined our delivery model to increase audience agency and overall capacity while maintaining intimate session sizes.
