Tempest Production’s StoryBook Theatre Fall 2020 continues its celebration of arts in education by offering a new program every week. Due to COVID-19, the productions have gone virtual.

The free videos will be posted at 1 p.m. on Sundays and will be available throughout the fall.

From read-alongs to creative drama workshops, these programs are designed for PreK-Grade 2 to be used in the home, classrooms, libraries, and community centers. The programs can be vieed at www.tempestproductions.org or on YouTube.

Tempest has free teacher guides and art activities that can be used along with the videos. Email info@tempestproductions.org.
