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.

HERCULES & THE GOLDEN APPLE
is an interactive, musical adaptation of one of Hercules’ famous labors. The labors were assigned to him by the Oracle of Delphi to clear his reputation and keep his soul from Hades. For this labor, Hercules is told he must pick two golden apples from a magic apple tree. Unfortunately, that tree grows in Hera’s secret garden. The goddess, Hera, doesn’t want anyone to find her garden – least of all Hercules who she doesn’t like at all. Hercules has to solve puzzles and take a long journey across Greece and Egypt to get to Hera’s Garden of Hesperides. But with the help of Athena, the Sphinx, Atlas, and a Greek chorus (the audience), he may have a fighting chance to succeed.
