Dive into a full day of exploration and discovery at the RPAC Kids Takeover, where each event is a thread in a vibrant tapestry of learning, joy, and community. While each performance, workshop, and activity is enriching on its own, the true magic unfolds when these experiences are woven together throughout a day spent at the event. 

At our takeover, we believe in the power of interconnected experiences. Each show, activity, and interactive session is designed not only to stand alone but to complement and enhance the others. By spending the entire day with us, you and your family will see how the themes and lessons from one event deepen and expand in the next, creating a richer and more comprehensive experience. 

Engage in "the hard work of play" — where children lead and adults follow, rediscovering the joy and freedom of unstructured creativity. Our event is a unique space where play is serious business, fostering creativity, learning, and social bonds. The full day's journey at RPAC during the takeover is an opportunity to immerse fully in this dynamic environment, where each playful activity is not just fun but a building block to a greater understanding of ourselves and each other. 

Just as a story builds to a climax, each part of your day builds upon the last. Start your day with a hands-on workshop that sparks curiosity, then let that enthusiasm carry you into a theatrical performance that expands the morning's themes. Each connection made, from the scientific wonders explored in You Are a Doughnut to the collaborative storytelling in Pat Malone's Magic Garden, enhances the next, culminating in a comprehensive experience that is greater than the sum of its parts. 

Investing your time in a full day at our event is investing in an enriched experience that offers deeper insights and more profound joys. Witness your children lead the way in a world where their expertise in play guides the entire family through a day of meaningful and memorable learning. By the end of the day, not only will you have enjoyed a series of entertaining and educational activities, but you will also take home a mosaic of experiences that together offer a lasting impact. 

Don't miss the opportunity to transform a simple day out into an extraordinary adventure. Join us at the Kids Takeover, where the whole day’s journey is designed to educate, inspire, and entertain. Let's celebrate the art of learning through play, where every moment is an opportunity to grow, connect, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
