The Greatest Story Never Told
A narrator walks on stage and finds a storybook with no text and learns that the actors scheduled to perform are stuck in traffic! The ONLY answer to this problem:

Have the children from the audience volunteer to come on stage and become a character in:


Audience volunteers help "The Greatest Interns" (professional adult improvisers, ) make up a story on the spot based on audience suggestions. We will throw on silly costumes and create a 45-60 minute story complete with improvised music, singing & dancing!!

After the show, a design team transforms the original improvised story into a purchasable digital and physical storybook.

It is the goal to get EVERY child in the audience that wants to perform a chance to be on stage. There is no forced participation. This is an all ages show particularly great for ages 4-14. Children age 2 and younger are FREE.

Doors open at 2:30pm. Join us before the show every week for coloring, crafts, board games & dress up fun on the stage. Complimentary snacks and FREE locally roasted COFFEE are always provided!
