Tell Me A Story Theatre Tour

Traysie Amick, SCCT’s Principal Teaching Artist, brings her high energy and child-friendly interpretation of favorite children’s stories to your kids. It’s sure to be a great literacy connection and a sweet treat for your students, right in your own classroom. A chance for wee ones (pre-K to early elementary) to hear a favorite story read and acted out! The material will likely include audience participation segments or simple audience interaction and will last no longer than 30 minutes – perfect for young, wiggly patrons.


  • One performance for up to 50 students – $100 for locations within 5 miles of downtown Greenville
  • Add a second performance on the same day for $50 more

An additional travel fee of $1 per mile (round trip) will apply for locations further than 5 miles from downtown Greenville.


If you are interested in bringing a tour to your school, please submit an inquiry form for Greenville County Schools, Greenville County Private Schools or Out of County Schools. Please contact Lauren Imhoff with any questions.
