"Always be asking 'why?'"

Seesaw Theatre was founded under the name "Theatre Stands with Autism" in 2012 by Northwestern University seniors Melanie Gertzman and Anna Marr. TSWA was founded with the belief that theatre is a basic human right and denying anyone access because of ability status is unacceptable. Rather than merely accommodating audiences with special needs, Seesaw Theatre produces multi-sensory theatrical experiences for small audiences where each guest is accompanied by their own "adventure guide" who plays with them throughout the production, creating an individualized experience.

Multi-Sensory

Our shows are made to embrace all of the senses, not just sight and sound. Get ready to walk into a brand new world.

One-on-One

When you bring a guest to a Seesaw Theatre production, you can sit back and relax as an adventure guide acts as their liason to the show.

Safe

Our shows are designed under strict supervision from our design chair to be safe and accessible for our audience.
