Pip’s Island Opening in NYC this November

Pip’s Island Opening in NYC this November

Kids will get the chance to step into a fantasy world starting on November 12 when Pip’s Island, an immersive theater experience combining gaming, animation and fantasy, opens in downtown Manhattan.

Running for 8-weeks only Pip's Island, tailored to children ages 4-10, is the brainchild of brother/sister team Rami and Rania Ajami. The show—three years in the making—follows the adventures of Pip, his pals, Pebble and Finn, and an array of colorful characters who inhabit a mysterious island. What makes this show special is that audiences are not just watching the story—they help shape what happens. Children are invited to become a part of the story and help the Island's inhabitants save the day!

Each guided, hour-long expedition is designed to empower children by giving them experiences that will help them find the spark within. During the adventure, each child explorer collects “sparks” in the form of badges as he or she plays or completes tasks to advance in the story. To overcome obstacles and challenges, each player finds the spark within —the power to impact the world around them. Children aren’t passive observers; they fully engage and help shape the narrative.

Graphic novels, web series, broadcast animated series, mobile apps and video games will be used to explore the rich story world using the fully developed visual language developed by the in-house animation team.

“Pip’s Island is born from today’s need for children to have multi-sensorial experiences that challenge their minds, spirits and bodies,” says Rami Ajami. “Pip's Island is the future of kid's entertainment as it transcends digital and physical realms.”  

Pip’s Island launches November, 11th at Chelsea’s Skylight Modern (537 W 27th St., NYC). Tickets are on sale September 7th at
