Tell-Me-A-Story Theatre

One of our Teaching Artists brings her high energy and child-friendly interpretation of favorite children’s stories to your kids. It’s 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! Material often includes audience participation or simple interaction and will last no longer than 30 minutes – perfect for young, wiggly patrons.

We can bring our programs to you – either in-person or virtually!

IN-PERSON Tell Me a Story Performances we need a space to accommodate the children (maximum of 40) with appropriate distancing as well as a clear space for the performer (8’x10’). Open outdoor spaces can work well when the weather permits. And an adult observer/teacher from the childcare provider in the room to help with student behavior. Our performer WILL be in mask and will strive to maintain distance from the students (with help from the childcare providers).

VIRTUAL Performances will need an adult observer/teacher from the childcare provider in the room with the students who knows how to connect to the virtual class, a large screen able to display our teacher for optimal visibility connected to reliable wifi.  The specific meeting links will need to be generated by your organization and an invitation sent to SCCT a few days before for our teacher/performer to use on the day scheduled.

It is critical for the childcare organization to test the planned computer, promethean board, smart TV in advance of the scheduled class/performance so that all the tech glitches are worked out (potential feedback from 2 microphone sources, how we can see your students based on your camera source, etc) and so that the teacher/operator is confident in connecting and operation ahead of the scheduled date. This can be done in house with a link sent to another teacher/administrator to practice ahead of time.

Cost: One performance for up to 40 students – $125 for locations within 5 miles of downtown Greenville
Add a second performance on the same day for $50 more
