Host a Show

We'll bring the show to your group. Act!vated Shows are ideal for mixed age groups. The physicallity in the performance appeals to infants and toddlers, while kids enjoy getting involved in the stories and the adults appreciate the witty scripts that include humor just for them. All ages are wowed by the tennis racket trick and the chance to learn American Sign Language.

All you need to host a show is an indoor location with a performance area of at least 12' x 12' and room for up to 250 parents and homeschoolers. Send a booking request and find out when the act!vators will be touring your area.

The program includes a pre-show drama workshop for up to 12 kids (age 6 and up). The guest stars rehearse with the performers for a half hour, learning acting skills and parts in the show.

Attend a Public Show

Bring your family or your homeschool group to the public shows sponsored by local libraries and other community organizations. Check the tour itinerary for show locations, dates and times. Be sure to contact your local librarian if you plan on bringing more than 10 people.

There is a performance opportunity for up to 12 kids (age 6 and up) who arrive one half-hour before show time.

About Shows for Homeschool Groups

All we need is an indoor space with a performance area of approximately 12' x 12' (such as a meeting room at a church, library, campground or community center) and a group of enthusiastic people.

"Our favorite parts were the interaction with children and great humor, also the pantomime and physical comedy." ~Jason Sosnak, Corapolis, PA



Hands-on Minds-on Workshops can be arranged after the show for groups of up to 30 participants each.

Individual workshops may also be scheduled for homeschooled groups that wish to piggy back with shows scheduled in your area.
