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.

This original musical takes the audience on a fun trip though our solar system with Purrlie, a cat astronaut. Purrlie wanted to see for herself if the Milky Way was made of milk, so her backyard friends build a rocket ship out of tuna cans, duct tape, and hubcaps. On her journey she meets several of the planets, asteroids, and planetoids that call this solar system their home.  For all ages.  approx. 45 minutes.


is an interactive, musical, wacky re-telling of the myth of Hercules' tenth labor.  It features several of the well-known gods, goddesses, and other creatures of Greek mythology.  It also need some audience help to create a Greek chorus so the story can be told in typical Greek theatre tradition.  For all ages.  approx. 50 minutes


is a fun, musical mash-up of the tales of The Little Red Hen and Chicken Little. It features the familiar characters of Henny Penny, Goosie Lucy, Turkey Lurkey, and Ducky Luck as well as the infamous & sly Foxy Loxy.  This version is full of songs and clever twists & turns.  For all ages.  approx. 50 minutes
