Creative City Project Presents Stimulate the Arts Online Fundraiser

Creative City Project, which has produced numerous performance arts events in Orlando from “IMMERSE” to the recent sell-out success of “Down the Rabbit Hole,” has announced it’s upcoming 2021-2022 season of projects.

From the return of popular, awe-inspiring events “IMMERSE,” “Dazzling Nights” and “Re:Charge” to the all-new theatrical and musical shows “JOYBOX,” “Dragons and Fairies” and “The Seasons,” the 2021-2022 season holds exciting adventures for everyone of all ages.

“Coming off the heels of our latest sell-out success ‘Down the Rabbit Hole’, we are thrilled to keep the momentum going,” says Creative City Project Executive Director Cole NeSmith.

“This upcoming season allows us to bring back IMMERSE and continue to bring original programming to Central Florida all year long. Covid-19 hit the arts community hard. At the same time, it pushed us to adapt, evolve and get even more creative. We are proud of the safe, memorable, inspiring and meaningful events we’ve created, and we look forward to audiences of all ages enjoying what’s to come.”

Here are the shows to mark in your calendars:
