International Performing Arts for Youth

So happy to be returning to where it all started.  In 2013, while still under the auspices of McCarter Theatre, we were chosen to present a 10-minute version of Sunjata Kamalenya in Austin, Texas.  This magical ten minutes became the basis for our company, as it is there that we met our agent, Robin Klinger, and slowly began touring nationally to theater companies who saw us at IPAY 2013.  Now three and a half incredibly busy years later we are now proud to announce that we will be returning to IPAY in 2017, but this time we are proud to announce that we have been selected from a pool of more than a hundred applicants from around the world to present a full performance showcase.  The play we'll be performing is Journey to Oz, our co-production with Children's Theatre of Charlotte.

Ecstatic to be returning to Florida Rep where they are mounting the world premiere of our new experiential theater play about the life of Edgar Allan Poe and the incredible poems and short stories he wrote.  Commissioned for Florida Rep's Children's Theatre Series, the play puts a vaudeville spin into a world where the audience is invited to sing, create sound effects, recite poetry, and engage in creepy storytelling.  This show will tour throughout Southwest Florida from September 2016 to May 2017.


Adelita y su Caballo: A Cinderella Rodeo 

by Christopher Parks            

directed by Kassie Missiewicz

Joining our friends from Trike Theatre down in Arkansas, Christopher Parks and Trike Artistic Director Kassie Misiewicz are teaming up to create a bilingual experiential Cinderella story about a little girl and her farm horse who want to ride in the rodeo.  Children will celebrate Mexican culture and the spirit of courage as Adelita stands up for herself and other children like her whose voices deserve to be heard.  In Mexico, the name Adelita is synonymous with bravery and feminine equality, two qualities our hero will teach her family and friends about before the play is over.   
Healthier Ever After by Christopher Parks
reimagined by Experiential Theater Company

You may be surprised to hear, but the Tortoise beat the Hare because he takes care of himself.  He exercises every day and eats right, too.  And Jack and Jill probably wouldn't have taken such a big fall had they not gotten so dizzy from lack of hydration all day.  Join Experiential Theater Company's Naja Selby as she and a cast of fairy tale fable characters discover what it means to live healthier ever after.  As part of the Philadelphia School System's Eat Right Now Program, Experiential Theater Company is proud to partner with Young Audiences New Jersey & Eastern Pennsylvania to create a whole new reimagining of this nutrition information production.
