Introducing Sensory Exploratory Theatre (SET) Story from Stages Theatre Company!
All types of play are essential for children’s development and early learning.
At Stages, we play with purpose. Sensory Play helps children to: develop and improve their gross and fine motor skills, advance their coordination and concentration, learn how to work cooperatively and collaboratively, use all their senses in exploring their environment, and develop their imagination, creative thinking and problem solving skills.
Inspired by the fun we’ve had with our Theatre for the Very Young productions like On the Railroad and Swimmy, and our preschool education classes and camps, we want to bring the fun and learning of interactive theatre to YOUR school or daycare with SET (Sensory Exploratory Theatre) Story! Using theatrical storytelling and sensory integration activities, Stages Theatre Company actor educators will guide your students through a dramatic adventure in which YOUR students will use their bodies, voices and imaginations to meet characters, become characters, and work together to solve the problems we encounter within the imaginary world of the play. This year, we are diving deep into our favorite ocean stories and tales with SET Story: Under the Sea!
What we need to come to you: An open space without desks, but no gym please. A multipurpose room is perfect!
Time Commitment: This is a 30 minute experience. We have the ability to repeat SET Story up to 6 times within one school day to accommodate your many classrooms.
Capacity: With two teaching artists guiding the SET Story experience, we are able to accommodate no more than 25 students per performance. The interactive nature of SET Story is best with at least 10 students. Part of the value of the experience is witnessing other’s participation as well.
Who is SET for? SET Story is for daycares, preschools, and kindergartens. Additionally, we are able to accommodate for students who have Sensory Processing Disorders but do require notice for appropriate staffing
To encourage the connection of arts and literacy a few books we love to pair with SET Story: Under the Sea are Swimmy, The Pout Pout Fish, Not Quite Narwhal and The Rainbow Fish.
And so many more! (could the book title pictures go with this copy and not above?)
Prices: $100 per SET Story experience.
