Explore three rooms- The Rain, The Clearing and The Rainbow.

Listen to the story, solve the riddles and discover what lies beyond…

This fun, immersive and interactive experience runs approx. 30 mins. Guests will work together to create a storm, have an opportunity to seek out their reflection and discover a beautiful rainbow. Those that work together and solve the riddle will be rewarded, a secret room, only for those that can find the way. At the end, all will be invited to paint their own watercolour rainbow and add it to the window display to spread joy into the community.

"In order to experience the magic of a breathtaking rainbow, we need to endure the storm and reflection that comes before it. How we weather that storm, how we work together, how we find joy and spread that joy is transformative. I want children to know, there will be hard times, life will be unpredictable, but there is always joy, so seek it out and then release it into the world."

**Members of the media are welcome to explore and take photos at the dress rehearsal on:

Friday November 12th, 11am- 1pm. Please email to reserve your spot.**

This indoor event will follow all Toronto Public Health COVID-19 safety protocols.
