THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES
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.
You can now hear some of our most popular plays for free on the podcast Winking Kat Tales. Available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, & winkingkattales.com.

TIGER, RABBIT & THE RESCUE OF SPRING
Everyone is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spring, but she's late. When Henrik goes to investigate, he meets a girl who has been turned into a rabbit by Ol' Man Winter. She tells Henrik that Winter has captured Spring and won't let her go. Even though Winter turns Henrik into a tiger, he must hold on to his humanity and work with Nissa, the rabbit, to rescue Spring from Winter's castle.
