Kenneth Grahame’s

Join us on an adventure “beyond the Wild Wood, into the Wild World.” Four lovable and familiar friends remind us that even when the world seems scary, we are safe at home when we can offer each other friendship.

The annual American Stage Theatre for Young Audiences production is the longest running and widest reaching program in our 40 year history, performing adaptations of classic children’s literature for as many as 20,000 audience members each fall across Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties.  A small cast of professional actors visit elementary schools, as well as school audiences at Tampa Theatre, and family audiences on our MainStage.

For generations, children raised in Tampa Bay have experienced theatre for the first time with American Stage.

Our Theatre for Young Audiences production ignites a thirst for reading and learning about new people, places, and ideas. Young people interpret their world through storytelling, and powerful stories encourage us all to be bolder, wiser, and more compassionate on stage and in life.
