Cultural Arts, School Assemblies, School Shows, Arts Education, Educational Entertainment- call it what you will, that’s what we do. We deal with PTOs, PTAs, public schools, private schools, charter schools, after school; you name it, we perform there. It’s what we do. Felicity Jones and Tim Latta have been entertaining audiences in theatres around the world for many years. (see bios). They now bring their expertise into the schools to perform and conduct workshops for all ages (K-12). Why do we bring theatre to the schools? Because that’s where the kids are! We feel it’s important to perform in the schools because they are the building blocks of our society. We feel very strongly that exposure to the arts as both a discipline and a medium of expression is crucial to the education of our young people. We also feel that artistic presentation is a highly effective teaching tool that can easily incorporate the common core. We offer two school assemblies for elementary school, middle school and high school. ME PLURIBUS UNUM and MOTION 360.
