Dallas Children’s Theater presents Andi Boi
Dallas Children’s Theater will present Andi Boi, a world premiere production focused on one transgender teen's journey. DCT, in conjunction with Grob Technologies, Inc., will be launching new innovations in storytelling via the use of 3D model projections and augmented reality. These explorations will bring gaming special effects into a theater setting.
Andi Boi is about a transgender teen entering his first day of high school identifying as a male. Former classmates recall his last name when they hear it, but there is something different about Andi that keeps the dots from connecting clearly in their minds. As they learn more about each other, Andi and his classmates bond over a popular virtual game called Biddybeasts.
During certain moments in the production, audiences will meet the animated Biddybeast characters of the virtual game via 3D model projections and an augmented reality application via the use of their smart phones. Following the show, audiences will be able to meet the stars of Andi Boi, as well as enjoy more augmented reality fun with the Biddybeast characters.
