PAINTBOX THEATRE RECIPE FOR FUN
Our goal is to teach children a love of classic tales and to show children and parents how to play. To achieve these ends, we have developed a most intriguing recipe:
INGREDIENTS:

1. Start with a children's classic:
Princess and the Pea
The Great Race of the Tortoise and the Hare


Aladdin
2. Add three actors
Three Witches from Snow White

OR

The actors from The Three Bears

OR

The Hairy Eyeball
3. Add a theatre...

The audience awaits the start of The Three Bears.
...the Paint Box Playhouse...

Robin Hood actors in the Paintbox Playhouse

...and a screen.

The Paintbox Theatre stage and screen
4. Include lots of children's art:
On the screen on stage, we project pictures children have created for every character and locale. For each production more than 20 children create works.
Witch, Grandma in Bed, and a map of Sherwood Forest
The House was blown away, Robin Hood, and Snow White
Three Little Pigs and Robin Hood and his Merry Folk
5. Fill the play with lots of improvisation and games.
    Of course, to tell the story, we need lots of help, so some children join us on stage.
Audience members joint in to tell the story of the Three Bears
We get the entire audience involved!
The audience gets into the action of Robin Hood.

Bring all those ingredients together, mix well, and you've got...
