We love to travel! Our shows for children are perfect for your school, library or community center. All shows feature two actors, a simple-to-set-up backdrop, plenty of costumes, props (and occasional puppets) mixed in with a lot of laughs. We are always happy to work with your time and budgetary needs and our shows require very little from our hosting venue. Please contact Marci Bernstein at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about bringing a show to your door.
Tricky, Tricky Trickster Tales GRADES PRE-K – 5 (AGES 4-11) Attic Salt explores Native American, Indian, Peruvian and African folklore with these hilarious adaptations of traditional Trickster Tales. Lively, fast-moving and funny, kids of all ages will cheer as joke-telling Monkey tries to save himself from some crocodiles. They will laugh as Anansi the greedy spider gets his comeuppance and will watch in wonder as Fox discovers fire.
Greek Myths! GRADES PRE-K – 5 (AGES 4-11) Brave heroes! Meddling gods and goddesses! Epic journeys! Greek myths have it all, and Attic Salt’s adaptation of some of our favorite myths will keep you cheering and laughing while you learn about mythology. This show’s colorful costumes, innovative stagecraft and silly storytelling antics will keep even your youngest kids engaged.
The Tale of the Pig GRADES K-5 (AGES 6-10) This hilarious adaptation of a Romanian folktale uses puppetry and some fast-changing actors to tell the story of Fredrick, the magical pig and a Princess who can’t learn to be happy with what she has. The Tale of the Pig teaches kids the importance of appreciating things in your life and looking for the positives in seemingly challenging situations.
Newly Grown Tales GRADES PRE-K – 6 (AGES 4-11) Newly Grown Tales combines several conventions of storytelling with some of the more inventive conventions of theater to tell folktales the children have a hand in writing. The content is fully improvised so that kids of any age can better understand how folktales are told, and how they have been passed down through oral tradition for generations. This show is fun for anyone who believes in the power of storytelling, and, maybe, has a story or two to tell.
