The StoryPlay Program

Is it Storytime? Children's theater? Playtime? YOU Decide!


StoryPlay is as limitless and creative as a child's imagination!  This program is designed so that children of all ages and levels of ability can personally take part in a storytelling activity by creating characters and making up their own lines in an interactive adventure led by award-winning author Jason Edwards.  Any child old enough to talk can participate because no reading or writing skills are required.  Children create characters, choose settingings, and decide the course of the plot.  Slapstick humor abounds as Jason acts out the madcap tale and cues the performers when it is time to deliver their lines, providing prompts, hints, and encouragement such as "And the monster made a noise that sounded like...?" or "But my mom didn't believe me, so she said...?"   The zanyness continues right up until the tale is guided to its ultimate conclusion.

It may sound complicated, but virtually any child can successfully take part in this activity due to the clever scripting by Jason Edwards, author of Will Allen and the Great Monster Detective and its sequels, Will Allen and the Ring of Terror and Will Allen and the Hideous Shroud.

The program can accommodate a wide variety of age groups and numbers of participants, and lasts approx. 45 minutes to an hour, and can be modified to fit into shorter time frames as well.




StoryPlay can be performed almost anywhere, anytime!

There is nothing scarier (OR FUNNIER!) than kids acting like monsters!
