Alston Middle School students work with ECM Instructor Storytree Children's Theatre to create alien characters and then collaborate as a group to write a script and produce a performance where the character teaches science concepts to humans. Students in the audience play the role of critic as they critique the skits on their tablets.
ECM's partnership with the Charleston Gaillard Center and Charleston County School District brought together teachers from Charleston County School District, Berkeley County School District and Dorchester School District Two to have an AMAZING day learning Arts Integration techniques from Teralyn Reiter of Storytree Children's Theatre. It was a great day learning theatre techniques to teach the American Revolution as well as developing ideas to teach standards in multiple grades. Participating teachers were given free tickets to see American Bandstand at the Gaillard Center.
Alston-Bailey Elementary School 5th graders work with ECM Instructor Storytree Children's Theatre to explore various artists from the Harlem Renaissance and create new artwork inspired by the artists. Students work collaboratively to create rhyming words and perform their projects.
CCSD Fine Arts Office, Engaging Creative Minds and the Charleston Gaillard Center’s Education & Community Program next installment of Arts Integration in the classroom is almost here! In this entertaining workshop led by ECM Instructor Storytree Children's Theatre’s, Teralyn Reiter, teachers will learn simple theater-based techniques to turn any lesson into an engaging Arts Integrated lesson that will have your students learning, creating and collaborating.

Check out this flyer for more information!
Kindergarten students at Jennie Moore Elementary School work with ECM Instructor, Storytree Children's Theatre, to create "frozen pictures" retelling the story of the Gingerbread Boy. Students focus on depicting characters, settings, and emotions without moving!

Thankful everyday for all of our opportunities to teach the students of our community through the power of theatre.

[10/21/19]   Just a fun moment from one of our families:

"Last night he was bored at the hockey game and he started doing the fake yank the jaw open by pulling a hand below the chin and one above the head. It was cracking me up and I had no idea where he got that! I asked and he said "acting class!"

Theatre for life, and for when you're bored.

Who is Storytree?

We are a PROCESS-focused theatre group of professional Teaching Artists who believe in honoring the child’s imagination and cultivating the art of PLAY. We offer high-quality in-school residencies, camps, after school classes and touring shows.

What is PROCESS-focused? It simply means that our classes are focused on the theatre process, not just the performance. Through our interactive games, engaging teachers, and one-of-a-kind camps, every child learns about writing plays, designing plays, and performing plays. We help bring the child’s imagination to life on the stage while teaching theatre fundamentals and the critical life skills of communication, team work and problem solving.

What’s a RESIDENCY? A residency is a tailor-made original lesson plan that teaches standards-based curriculum using theatre. Our Teaching Artists meet with teachers and create an interactive lesson that instantly gets students engaged and learning. Residencies can be two days to two weeks. We believe in supporting teachers and creating with them. Give us your old, tired standard that you’re simply tired of teaching and we will offer a new spin.

YEAH, but what do TEACHERS actually think of a residency?
