Children's Theater the Whole Family thoroughly Enjoys
Every show features witty scripts, costumes, imaginative props, nonstop action, American Sign Language, physical comedy, audience participation and on occasion music, song and dance, masks and puppets presented by two professional performers. All set before a gigantic oversized book that encourages reading and promotes a love of literature. Act!vated Story Theatre, a division of L'Eau Theque Productions a non-profit 501(c)3, has been touring non-stop bringing theatrical folktale shows to every nook and cranny across the U.S.A. since 1988.
We are now offering virtual theatre. Ringside seats for students and their families. Plus, live interactive video chat sessions.
Two Folktales Included
- Hina Moves to the Moon (Polynesian): a Hawaiian fable about a phenomenal seamstress who takes her skill to the moon to escape her unhappy life on earth.
- The Tortoise and the Hare (Greek): a rather vaudevillian take on Aesop's classic fable, our narrative has the hammy hare wanting to be the star of the show, but he is upstaged by the patient and persistent tortoise.
The virtual program is pre-recorded from multiple camera angles, and professionally edited to bring the viewer up into the action. Unlike a live performance the audience will experience the play from the perspective of the characters onstage and see what happens when the actors go backstage. During the interactive live chat session on Facebook or Zoom, the actor/producers will lead a discussion about performing the stories and teach some ASL, as well as answer questions from the viewers.
