A simple story, but in the hands of Storybook Theatre it’s transformed into an hour of wonderful songs and hilarious antics, and many, many excuses to bring the kids up on stage to help out…which they couldn’t get enough off!

The sets are colorful and imaginative and the cast full of enthusiasm and passion and they blend the children’s audience participation with the story so beautifully, interweaving their suggestions, encouraging them and engaging them beautifully.

It was so lovely to watch their little faces all aglow, to hear them calling out and gasping and giggling…so completely enchanted, were they.

We do non-threatening, interactive musicals with a message for children 3 – 9 years old.  The Los Angeles Times calls us “simply the best at what they do”, and Los Angeles Magazine says we are the “best in the City for the squirmy set”. Most importantly, LA Parent Magazine’s recent parent survey ranked us as the No 1 children’s theatre in Southern California.
