Typical Tour Circuit

Act!vated Story Theatre brings shows to students all over the United States and beyond. During the summer months the typical tour circuit takes the show from the West Coast (early June); to the MidWest (mid to late June/early July); to the East Coast (July/August). In the fall we perform at schools and libraries in all of the states along Northeastern Seaboard. In early November we start heading south towards South Carolina - performing as we go. In January Florida becomes basecamp. In late February/early March we dash west dropping in and performing at all of the venues we can in states lying along our path. By late March/early April we perform along the entire West Coast. Then (deep breath) in May we do a bit of performing while we rehearse new shows and start the process all over again.


Discounts for group block bookings. Shows may be scheduled at different locations, and different groups are encouraged split the fees. Up to four shows may be scheduled in one day at a maximum of three different locations. Please check the tour schedule for other shows scheduled in your general area.

In addition to school assemblies and library reading programs, the shows are well suited for theatres, museums, after school programs, scouts, hospitals, daycares and any indoor location where children and their families gather.

Shows may be scheduled at night and on weekends.

Promotional materials are included for all shows open to the public. Study Guides are provided.
