For the Drama King or Queen: Treasure Trunk Theater

If you’ve got a child that loves dress up and has a big imagination, look no farther than Treasure Trunk Theater. Welcome to a world that promises a “dramatic adventure”, complete with themed costumes and props from a treasure trunk of endless possibilities. Kids can (of course) choose to be Anna of Frozen, become a captain of a pirate ship, join the Avengers, lead a space adventure — just to name a few options. Bonus: The Trunk people are accommodating: they can come to your home, you can go to them in one of two Brooklyn locations, or they can do their thing at a venue of your choice. Add-ons include food, decorations, as well as and props and costumes that can be purchased as party favors. Expect a 45-minute structured event, with a Treasure Trunk staffer leading kids on a dramatic and magical adventure, customized to the guest of honor’s liking. Rates start at $225.

Price: $225 for up to 7 children; $275 for 8-17 children; $325 for 18-24 children; $375 for 25-30 children
