National Theatre for Children - Story Studio LIVE
Capital E’s National Theatre for Children is proud to present Story Studio LIVE 2021!
This year, Story Studio LIVE is based on the themes of climate change and the environment. It promises to showcase the diverse stories of young people in an engaging show that can be performed in your school hall.
Our Story Studio LIVE productions are unique in that they are developed alongside rangatahi as co-creators, creating a show that is not only relevant to, but informed by, the views of Year 6 – 8 students in New Zealand.
This year, we will navigate the topics of climate change in a sensitive way, maintaining the wellbeing/hauora of students. We invite you to use this production as a platform to help you explore these critical topics in your own classroom.
This theatre project features professional actors and technicians and highlights the voices of our young people. Story Studio LIVE will show your students how far their ideas and imagination can go, inspiring the next generation of writers, actors, scientists, journalists and creative thinkers!
Story Studio LIVE 2019 was a great success, touring to 101 schools across the country and receiving the Excellence Award for Theatre for Young Audiences at the Wellington Theatre Awards.
