Story Studio LIVE is a Capital E National Theatre for Children performance devised by professional artists for schools and inspired by the thoughts and ideas from students across the nation. Every year, Capital E garners opinions on various topics from tamariki and rangatahi, devising these into a highly professional radio-style play, using sound technology and Foley sound recorded effects. Story Studio LIVE is then toured nationally into schools, reaching more than 9,000 students annually.

Last year, Capital E’s Story Studio LIVE performance focused on cultural diversity and explored what it means for young people to be a New Zealander today. This year our theme is focused on our relationship to our environment and to one another.
