Non-Profit Corporation

L'Eau Theque Productions, a non-profit corporation 501(c)(3) was formed in 1988, to serve and educate the general public by means of theatrical presentations.

Mission Statement

The objectives of L'Eau Theque Productions and Act!vated Story Theatre are

  • to provide audiences of all ages with theatrical entertainment that educates and encourages independent thought
  • to preserve the folklore and literature of many cultures and historical eras, and to demonstrate that folklore is a living, evolving entity
  • to provide children an opportunity to express themselves through writing and theatrical performance
  • to help educators learn productive ways to foster creativity and self-esteem among students
  • to stress the common heritage of diverse cultures, including ethnic minorities and the Deaf/Hard of Hearing


In the past, L'Eau Theque Productions has produced several nationally touring productions for children and their families including a production of "A Christmas Carol" which toured to main stage performance halls and featured a cast of seven professional actors. We also have mounted shows for adult audiences. As the name L'Eau Theque (low tech) implies, the philosophy is to keep technical requirements simple. We use common household objects in unusual, imaginative ways. The goal is to inspire and encourage audiences to read, and explore the performing arts.

Act!vated Storytellers / Act!vated Story Theatre denotes The Goza Family, the heart and soul of L'Eau Theque Productions. They wear a lot of hats to produce and perform the show.

"Your show was high energy and lots of fun, and professional even though the audience was large, you kept them actively involved all the way." ~Carol VanBaalen, Children's Librarian, Des Moines, WA
