Voytto Tech: a scifi fable

GRADES K-6 

Klipp Casey travels from a planet far, far away to study at Voytto Tech, the galaxy’s most famous science & technology magnet school. Right away, Klipp has trouble fitting in at his new school, and becomes a target for bullying. What can Klipp do? And what can anyone do about the huge energy crisis threatening the planet? This highly interactive play is performed by three actors who become a variety of characters. The entire audience participates from their seats, becoming characters in the story and brainstorming possible solutions for Klipp's problems. No play can or should offer an easy solution to the complex problem of bullying and social inequity; Voytto Tech offers schools an opportunity to open up dialogue about these complex issues in an engaging way. This play explores character education topics related to Bullying, Respect, Fairness, and Caring, and connects with objectives in Reading/Language Arts, STEM topics, and Theatre. Teachers receive resource outlining activities, discussion questions, and writing prompts.

Audience: 300 student maximum for each 50-minute performance

The Town That Cried Avalanche -- World Premiere!

GRADES K-6 

InterAct Story Theatre brings schools a world premiere of our brand new play for young audiences! The tiny mountain town of Avalanche, California is rocked with controversy: how can they balance the need for progress with taking care of the environment? And how can they even talk about it when everyone is mad at each other? Can they come together to save the town--before the mountain comes tumbling down? Inspired by Montpelier Elementary’s Grand Prize winning story at InterAct’s 2017 KidStory Theatre Festival

Audience: 300 student maximum for each 50-minute performance.

ADD A TALKBACK SESSION AFTER THE SHOW!

One of the best ways to fully appreciate a play is to talk with the actors who bring the play to life. Adding a Talkback session with the actors after a performance gives your students a wonderful opportunity to ask questions, explore the themes and lessons of the play, and learn more about the actor's craft. As part of the talkback, the actors will also demonstrate a little of what happens "behind the scenes", showing students how the set works and how the actors manage the split-second costume and character changes our plays require. An entertaining and educational arts experience! 

Maximum 125 students per Talkback session; a typical Talkback is approximately 20 minutes in length.

Add a Follow-Up Classroom Workshop!

The fun and learning continues with a follow-up classroom workshop. After a performance,  students participate in an engaging creative drama workshop with an actor from the play. Students explore the characters and themes of the play, and work together to compose and act out their own original scene extending the story of the play. This exciting workshop connects with curriculum content standards in English/Language Arts and Theatre. 

Maximum 25-27 students (one class) per workshop.
