Literature Alive Project

The magical world of Dr. Suess
Ages 3-10

FEB 23- MARCH 2, 2019

This is a free event! 

in 2018, we celebrated 7 consecutive years of Literature Alive!
8,000 books have been given to children in the Concho Valley

This is our favorite outreach project each year, as our goal with the TLAP is to inspire young children to read; thereby encouraging a lifelong love of reading through the magic of live theatre. We’ve watched little faces light up through 7 years of performances, and this year, we’ve decided we can do more with this endeavor, and reach further into the artistic foundation of the Literature Alive Project.

Our creative team has always concentrated on the written words of literature and how to transform it to the stage. As we design costumes and sets, we reference the book and the illustrations to try and emulate the visual images that might be bubbling in young minds. An artistic light bulb went off for the 2018 Literature Alive Project of Where the Wild Things Are. We dove deeper into this idea of Sendak’s illustrations inspiring our show for young children ages 3-12.   The show was totally interactive! In this 30 minute event, children experienced the story with movement and interaction making it an exciting experience for our young audience. 

We will bring the experience to life again for the 2019 Literature Alive Project as we bring Dr. Suess to life with readings from his best loved stories.  


If you are a current member of Be Theatre, we will be opening our final dress rehearsal for no charge.  You must be a current member of our theatre to attend.  Members are welcome to bring up to 5 guests per membership. More information will go out to specific members when we get closer to the production.
