Arts on the Horizon, a non-verbal theatre company whose programs are specifically designed for children ages 0 to 6, will present Off the Page, a world premiere play, as part of its 2023-24 season. Off the Page will run April 5, 6, and 7, 2024 at Theatre on the Run in Arlington, Virginia, and April 20 and 21, 2024 at The Lyceum in Alexandria, Virginia. The show will also tour locally to schools and daycare centers in April and May 2024.

Off the Page, created and directed by Ryan Sellers, was created specifically for an audience of children ages 3-6 and their families.

About the show:

The magic of books can transport us to new worlds! When an imaginative young child dives into a book, the stories come to life around them. Through dance, music, puppetry, and vibrant imagery, this world premiere production will use an immersive design to unfold around the audience. Watch a new world come to life right before your eyes!
