Inspired by the creativity of student writers in our schools, InterAct Story Theatre presents our KidStory Theatre Festival, a celebration of stories written by kids, for kids. Each year, InterAct’s teaching artists work with thousands of students across Maryland to create, refine, and dramatize original stories and plays rooted in curricular content; in the spring, we select the best of the best and transform them into short scenes, musical numbers, and puppet plays to be performed by professional actors in our KidStory Theatre Festival. InterAct’s teaching artists lead participating classes in a collaborative, creative drama-based writing process to create and dramatize a story rooted in the topic(s) your teachers have given us.
KidStory Theatre workshops are designed for every grade and for each specific classroom, and are available virtually this school year.
Our process is designed to connect with MCCSS in Reading Literature/Informational Text, Writing, and Speaking & Listening and National Arts Standards in Theatre.
