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 elementary schools (grades K-6) within Cherokee & Cobb Counties 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 provides a performances for Grades K-6 and are age-appropriate. Each RepTouR performance is live and interactive. The performances are geared toward a school assembly-type format and last approximately 45-50 minutes. Students who attend may get a chance to provide their own creativity for the show. Each performance will be structured according to the available troupe members. Here’s a breakdown of what is involved in RepTour’s school performances.
The RepTouR troupe members will be performing short scripted plays lasting approximately 15-20 minutes of the show. Only one of the literary plays can be chosen for each performance. Literary Plays include: The Lorax by Dr. Seuss or Tall Tales with Paul Bunyan & Johnny Appleseed
Build-a-Story: RepTouR will create and perform a story or skit instantaneously with the students through suggestion and participation. The stories created will be educational, interactive, and TONS of fun! All stories are age-appropriate.
Class Stories: Students will submit stories that have to do with any creative or educational topic (cartoons, sports, etc.). The Troupe Leader will choose 4-5 written stories and the troupe then performs each story for the audience with little to no preparation.
