The University of Wonder & Imagination 2020-11-24T14:51:10+00:00

Project Description

 Now enrolling students of all ages and magical abilities…

and there’s a place with your name on it!

The University of Wonder and Imagination is a fun, interactive theatre experience, suitable for all the family to enjoy via Zoom!

This brand new type of event is directed by you, the audience. The choices you make live, during the event, will shape your unique experience.

Assemble with your fellow students and journey to the most unusual of universities, where the mysterious Professor Bamberg will send you off on a self-navigated quest where nothing is quite as it seems.

You will interact with the liveliest of lecturers, choose your subjects of study, enter themed rooms and encounter all kinds of problems and puzzles, unlocking your magical powers as you go. 

You’re bound to leave this hallowed centre of magical learning with your mind boggled and your brain bamboozled, but do you have what it takes to graduate from the University of Wonder and Imagination?

In this ambitious and unique undertaking, Cahoots NI will broadcast from an extensive, purpose built set where magic and illusion has no boundaries, bringing a fun filled, immersive theatrical experience directly to you.

3. Our University Professors will want to interact with you live – if you do not wish to be seen by your fellow students and teachers, please do turn off your camera, but we would recommend keeping it on for a more magical experience!
4. Please ensure that any children are accompanied by an adult at all times throughout their University of Wonder & Imagination experience, and that your device is placed in a communal room such as a living room or kitchen. Make sure everyone in your household is aware the show is taking place and they will be featured on camera, if you choose to turn it on, and seen by other audience members.
