The performance will consist of two multicultural folktales from the troupe's current repertoire.
Kids who want to perform on stage are invited to learn parts to attend a free pre-show theatre workshop which begins one half hour before scheduled show time. Participation is limited to the first12 volunteers, age 6 and up, no experience necessary. The performance is open to all ages.
Act!vated Story Theatre productions are high-energy dramatizations of folktales. They don’t just tell stories they “Act!vate”
them. Each show incorporates physical comedy, zany props and costumes, audience participation, music, American Sign Language and a unique set, an oversize "book" with pages that turn to reveal scenery. The Reno Gazette-Journal says, “They have reinvented the art of theatrical storytelling."
Act!vated Story Theatre was founded in San Francisco, California in 1988. The professional touring troupe has performed in 45 states plus Washington, DC and Japan.
