Celebrated OUR 10-Year Partnership

Educational Theatre Internship, a partnership with Metropolitan State University of Denver, allows college theater students to serve as educators and role models of healthy behaviors for elementary school students. Using theater and storytelling, they perform shows that address social and emotional issues, including empathy-building and steps to deal with stress. Since 2008, this program has reached more than 149,210 students and adults in 320 Colorado schools across 32 districts. For more information contact Brian Harper.

Experiential Learning

Our multi-talented facilitators create open dialogue and tools to navigate social issues through storytelling, improvisational theatre techniques, and interactive exercises. Audiences come away with new perspectives on the health benefits of laughter and a greater understanding of the needs and health challenges of people with limited financial resources.
