RepTouR Story Tour 2022
What is RepTouR?
RepTouR is Elm Street’s Repertory Touring Troupe focusing on education and literature through the performing arts. RepTouR’s goal is to travel to local schools (grades K-6) within Cherokee County–providing students with a positive experience of interactive theatre through their own stories and ideas, expressing educational literature in creative ways, and presenting the knowledge of the theatrical arts in their community.
RepTouR began in 2007 with the idea of “bringing imagination to life”. Since then we have seen well-over 75,000 students and performed hundreds of kids’ stories–as well as a variety of children’s literature, with our own quirky twists, such as rapping Billy goats, starring Hansel & Gretel in an improvised film, and turning The Lorax into a “Stomp”-like show. This year, we are pleased to bring you our versions of Tales of the Wolf (mixing up Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf) and Horton Hears a Who.
Our goal this year is to return to form safely with LIVE in-school performances!
As we are returning to interactive in-person shows, we are not offering writing workshops this year. We are currently evaluating the best way to integrate them into our standard program for the future. Teachers will still receive our Story Builder worksheet and these stories all have a chance to be performed during the show!
Interested in booking RepTouR for your school? Contact our Troupe Director to schedule your live show date!
Schedule is on a first-come, first-serve basis and free shows are limited. Reservations can be scheduled between March 2-May 19, 2021.

LIVE IN-SCHOOL PERFORMANCE
Performances will consist of a literary show (Tales of the Wolf and Horton Hears a Who) and performed stories created by the classes.
Schools will need to schedule a morning or afternoon performance within 2 weeks of confirmed show date. On show day, schools will need to provide a cleared performance area (approx. 16×16 feet) and a microphone. Performances will be approximately 45 minutes in length and geared toward a grades K-2 or grades 3-5 audience.
We are booking schools beginning on Wednesday, March 2nd and continuing on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the Spring, for morning and afternoon performances.
