In addition to the wonderful reading themes, these shows engage students with important positive messages including self-esteem, anti-bullying, safety, basic visualization & goal setting techniques for improved results, along with most customized themes.

Arithmetickles is an interactive Math Game show that uses audience participation and comedy in fast-paced math segments to capture the attention of students in grades K-8. Arithmetickles makes math jump off the page and onto the stage and changes how kids think of math!
In the past, student groups have enjoyed our productions of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, THE JUNGLE BOOK, CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, THE WIZARD OF OZ, OF MICE AND MEN, CHARLOTTE’S WEB, and TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD among others. We hope that your school will take this opportunity to develop your student’s appreciation for the arts.
