Poetry as theater, transforming poems into scripts and students into fellow actors.

Program Description

Since 1984, POETRY ALIVE! has been presenting high-energy poetry shows for audiences from 8 years old to 80. In order to bring poetry from the page to the stage, POETRY ALIVE! presents verse as theater, transforming the poems into scripts and the audience members into fellow actors. The result is a non-stop tour de force of words with a twist of sorrow and a dash of silliness – and every emotion in between! *Returning to the bardic tradition of long ago, the POETRY ALIVE! actors have memorized literally hundreds of poems from the classics, to the popular, to the contemporary. The company sends out actors in pairs to schools, libraries, festivals, and anywhere there is an audience for “poetry with a twist.” The POETRY ALIVE! performance is an interactive experience that will get your audience excited about poetry and the spoken word. Two person actor teams will present your choice of format, including assemblies, classroom follow-ups, and teacher workshops. The team performs 15-20 poems in 35-55 minutes. *
