Looking for a show based on a book?

Twenty-seven!
That's how many shows on our 2014-2015 roster are inspired by books!  

These Prologue shows will enhance your literacy efforts or, as our own DuffleBag Theatre reports, they will at least encourage your students to develop their appreciation of the creative process...

Book list
Here's the list of books (most of the shows have have the same title as the book), with the link to the company on our website. Note that the mosaic is interactive.

You also might want to check our Pinterest board Power of books! on activities to complement some of these stories!
