Story Studio LIVE

Capital E National Theatre for Children is proud to present Story Studio LIVE 2020!  

Story Studio LIVE 2019 was a great success, touring to 101 schools across the country and receiving the Excellence Award for Theatre for Young Audiences at the Wellington Theatre Awards.  

This year, Story Studio LIVE is based on the themes of Kaitiakitanga and climate change, and will showcase the diverse stories of young people in an engaging show that can be performed in your school hall. Capital E will develop this work alongside rangatahi, exploring these ideas in depth with the students as co-creators. The creative team will combine these insights to form this season’s Story Studio LIVE narratives! 

Navigating the topics of climate change and kaitiakitanga in a sensitive way, maintaining the wellbeing/hauora of students. We invite you to use this production as a platform to help you explore these critical topics in your own classroom. 

This theatre project features professional actors and technicians, and highlights the voices of our young people. Story Studio LIVE will show your students how far their ideas and imagination can go, inspiring the next generation of writers, actors, scientists, journalists and creative thinkers!
