Beginning each October  actors from Last Leaf travel to schools, libraries, parks, and early learning centers to bring live theater programs to children of all ages. Many of the original adaptations are based on classic fairy tales or folk tales from around the world to encourage literacy.  Some programs are STEAM-based to coordinate with school curriculum.  But all are colorful and entertaining.  We consistently receive great positive comments from kids and adults in the audience as well.

Each season we feature two, 40 - 50 minute, interactive programs followed by a meet and greet with the professional actors. During the summer we add a third alternative program to coordinate with the summer reading theme for libraries across the country.
