Act!vated Story Theatre takes students along on a voyage of the imagination to foreign lands, distant eras and colorful cultures. Since 1988, thousands and thousands of preschool, elementary and middle school students and their teachers have laughed and learned as Act!vated Story Theatre has held them spellbound during school assemblies all across the U.S.
Theatrical productions now performed virtually. Every school program includes interactive classroom sessions via Zoom.
Folklore and performing arts enrich the lives of children by broadening their perspective and providing them with inspiring and thought-provoking stories. The multicultural folktales in the show are carefully selected to illustrate and encourage positive character traits such as independent thinking, creativity, self-esteem, motivation, determination and respect for others. The virtual school programs also stress the importance of reading, and help instill a fascination with books.

Virtual Program for Schools
Virtual Programs for schools include access to the pre-recorded performance for and live follow-up sessions for each class. During the live session the performers lead discussions to further develop the students' understanding of the stories and theatre in general. Each session is tailored to the student's grade level and will specifically answer their questions. Book the program for one classroom or the entire student body.
Study Guides are provided with educational activities and background information for the teachers to use before the performance to prepare the students and to follow-up after the show.
