Synopsis: "When does real life collide with make believe? For the four Conlee kids, ages 5 to 10, playing house is no longer a game when their parents inexplicably disappear. Thirty-two years later, their search for answers continues. Make Believe offers a look inside the minds of children, their parents and the mysteries of childhood that haunt us forever."

Directed by Michael Greif, the production features scenic design by David Zinn, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Ben Stanton, original music & sound design by Bray Poor, and hair & make-up design by J. Jared Janas.
