Come Find Me, set to a festive and moving score, tells the story of young Ben Patterson, who finds the holiday season both joyful and challenging. When his widowed father is deployed on a top-secret mission just before the holidays, Ben embarks on an unexpected quest to bring his dad—and Christmas—home. Told through the lens of a child on the spectrum, we learn the importance of living authentically, feeling passionately, and holding an unwavering hope in the magic of Christmas.

“I identify as a first-act Scrooge and typically don’t like Christmas, but Come Find Me pulled me out of my usual bitter feelings and helped me see the holiday in a new light. With a perfect mix of head, heart and humor, Come Find Me is a brave and kindhearted new musical unlike anything you’ve ever seen on stage during the holidays, until now.”
