Capital E's National Theatre for Children is proud to present Story Studio LIVE 2021! Touring to schools across the country in Term 3, and it costs just $1 per student!

This is the third iteration of our Story Studio LIVE concept, which takes the stories of young people and weaves them into a ‘radio play’, complete with live action foley sound effects. Our 2019 show received great reviews and won the Excellence Award for Theatre for Young Audiences at the Wellington Theatre Awards.  

This year, Story Studio LIVE is based on the themes of climate change and the environment. It promises to showcase the diverse stories of young people in an engaging show that can be performed in your school hall.

The team are working hard to represent the crisis of climate change whilst also providing hope and motivation for the future. We developed the show last year alongside local school students, with NIWA as our environmental consults. The show uses English with some Te Reo, and weaves Māori legend throughout the many stories, songs and sketches shared.

Our Story Studio LIVE productions are unique in that they are developed alongside rangatahi as co-creators, creating a show that is not only relevant to, but informed by, the views of Year 5 - 8 students in New Zealand. This theatre project features professional actors and technicians and highlights the voices of our young people.

Story Studio LIVE will show your students how far their ideas and imagination can go, inspiring the next generation of writers, actors, scientists, journalists and creative thinkers!
