What is Play Me a Story?

“Play Me a Story” is an interactive reader’s theater workshop series for children between the ages of 4-10. To set the scene, Portland Stage Affiliate Artists perform a staged reading of two or three popular children’s books. Following the performance, the audience is asked to participate in a workshop relating to the story. The workshop may focus on a particular character, place or situation that the story illuminates

Workshops will engage and inspire through vocalization, games, improvisation and movement. Join our professional actors as we explore new and classic children’s stories while encouraging your child’s love of theater and literature.
