Act!vated Story Theatre doesn’t just tell stories, they “Act!vate” them. Each performance incorporates physical comedy, zany props and costumes, audience participation, music, American Sign Language and a unique set, an oversize “book” with pages that turn to reveal scenery.
Act!vated Story Theatre was founded in San Francisco in 1988 by Dennis and Kimberly Goza. The professional touring troupe has performed in 45 states plus Washington, DC and Japan. This April alone they will perform at 22 locations throughout Northern California.
