Theatre Company In Residence
Child’s Play has worked with community organizations to develop cohesive programs that address community needs and bring people together. For instance, we were once commissioned to bring resident seniors in an area to tell their life stories to children in the schools. The children then created vignettes based on those stories and performed them on the stage. There were several stakeholders involved in this process and we worked with each of them to make the program a success. We can do the same for you.
An option may be to develop a program serving all the schools in your district. Child’s Play worked with all ten schools in the district of Rock Island, IL through a relationship with their Arts Council. We held writing classes in the schools during the day, and ended the program at the end of the week with a family show. After school programs are also a service we provide, along with professional development so programs can carry on after we’ve gone.
Our company has extensive experience collaborating with like-minded organizations such as museums, art galleries, civic groups, and other non-profits, with a strong focus on achieving shared goals. We’ve helped gain projects exposure through local media. And, we’ve received numerous awards and recognition for the work we’ve done.
