Act!vated Story Theatre goes above and beyond storytelling to stage folktales that stimulate the imagination, emphasize critical thinking and build cultural awareness. The 45-minute theatrical production features non-stop action, physical comedy, audience participation, American Sign Language and imaginative props; staged by two professional actors before a gigantic oversized book. Kids are sent to search for books related to the show at the end of each library performance. Shows are recommended for preschool-8th grade students and family audiences.
The following stories were specifically chosen for the 2011 SRP theme "One World, Many Stories". Each folktale represents a different region of the world and features a quest. Each show features TWO of the following 20-25 minute multicultural folktales.
* Orpheus (Greece)
* The Fourth Question (China)
* The Egyptian Cinderella (Egypt)
* The Hat Seller and the Monkey (Africa)
Shows are typically scheduled in Connecticut from August through October. Travel fees are waived during these months.
