In-School Performances

The 2018 School Tour follows a famous cast of friends as they learn how to love a feared outsider whom they don’t understand, because as the title character explains…“A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.

A.A. Milne’s

Adapted & Arranged by le Clanche du Rand
Directed by Tiffany Ford

Opening September 2018. Calendar coming soon!

The annual American Stage School Tour 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 through the American Stage School Tour. 

We ignite 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.
