From superheroes to undersea adventures, princesses to dinosaurs, Storytown takes you on an interactive, fully improvised adventure.
The actors use audience suggestions and ideas to create a different story every time. Kids design the setting and help shape the story. The actors, artists and musicians bring it to life.
When the possibilities are endless, no two stories are ever the same.
Storytown is a interactive improvisational musical that gives children hands on ownership of the arts.
Children are encouraged to take an active role in Storytown. They can chose the location, design the backdrop, give suggestions for characters and plot, become characters themselves, and aide our performers in any way they can imagine.
We become the canvas for their imaginations. We honor, embrace, and elevate their ideas.
When you and your family (or friends, or class…) come to Storytown, you’ll take part in a truly unique and truly interactive show that engages children and gives them arts education experience from top to bottom!
We can’t wait to see you in Storytown!
