The Interactive Storytelling Program

Too often theatres that have educational programs focus their work on children no younger than 3rd grade. Many elementary schools are actively looking for programing that impacts their neglected early elementary students. Interactive Storytelling fills this void. By creating programing that focuses on exploring with young children (grades K-2) their creativity through movement and character creation and emphasizing a respect for all people’s creative ideas, Interactive Storytelling fosters vital critical and creative thinking skills and helps prepare the way for life-long love of art and theatre.

Interactive Storytelling uses the boundless creativity of young children to create new works of theatre.  Students learn how to focus their imagination into play creation, group collaboration, and theatrical expression.  Even the youngest student can create a play that reflects their unique imagination and experience.
