Literature Alive!, a literacy program at East Valley Children’s Theatre that encourages kids to read and write. We have a Literature Alive Troupe that is made up of homeschooled kids. The troupe rehearses for 6 rehearsals in a five-week period both creating and performing an original script based on a children’s book. We then perform at Elementary schools (for Kindergarten and First Grade students).
We go into the schools, read a book to the kids, then we act out the story in our 20 minute original play, and if time permits we do a little interactive activity with the kids who are in the audience. Then as the kids leave they are all given a book of the story we just read and acted out. The program has been very successful and is a great experience for actors and audience alike.
Cost to be in the program is $150 per participant. ESA Funding accepted as payment.
