Ease the Tease In Action

In my time with Imagination Theater, I've been lucky enough to observe our audiences from the facilitator's point of view hundreds of times.  Still, few things beat the opportunity to experience a show from the audience's point of view.  

This past Friday I sat in the back of Hope Institute Learning Academy's auditorium with a crowd full of K-2nd graders.  They laughed at our Ease the Tease scenes, contributed to the discussions, processed the response strategies, and then joined our actors on stage to positively influence the outcome of real life scenarios.  Student volunteers were beaming as they returned to their seats.

After interacting with our actors for just 45 minutes, students leave with skills they'll remember throughout the school year!
