The Greatest Story Never Told

Editor’s Pick
About this Event

A hapless narrator discovers his storybook has no text and learns that none of the actors are coming to perform! The solution? Have children in the audience volunteer to become a character in The Greatest Story Never Told! Along with help from “The Greatest Interns,” (played by professional adult improvisers) kids put on silly costumes and make up scenes and songs for a story inspired by audience suggestions. All volunteers are given a chance to perform at some point in the story. There is no forced participation. A design team transforms the improvised story into a purchasable digital and physical storybook. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. with a variety of pre-show activities on stage. Free snacks & coffee at every show!
