The 2019 School Tour takes us “beyond the Wild Wood, into the Wild World.” Four lovable and familiar friends remind us to go out and discover more. They also show us that sometimes you have to go away in order to come back home.
THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS
Originally Adapted by R. Eugene Jackson
Adapted for touring by Betty-Jane Parks
Directed by Tiffany Ford
Touring September 30th – November 22nd 2019
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.
