Promote Literacy and Celebrate the Imagination With Children's Voices Theatre.

Children's Voices Theatre transforms stories and poems written by students K-6, into a magical theatrical experience that combines:

acting, mime, comedy, masks, puppetry, juggling, and audience participation

Throughout the performance, Michael Zerphy and Marv Klassen-Landis, creators of Children's Voices Theatre, weave themes of trusting one's inner voice, overcoming fear, and getting started when" I don't know what to write" . Students get so excited after seeing this performance that they can't wait to write their own poems and stories. This production is a high energy high student motivator.
