COVID -19 UPDATE:
January 2020 we started classes at several schools in the Las Vegas Valley. The kids worked tirelessly to get stories adapted into plays in order to showcase their hard work to their friends and community.
Then March 2020 everything ended due to COVID 19. However, we at Ants in the Pants found a way for the students to showcase their work through social media. Scroll down below to view videos of the kids stories!
We can't wait to get back into the classrooms with the kids!
ANTS IN THE PANTS PRODUCTIONS
Education Through Creativity
We take Children's Stories and put them onstage. Everything is written by children and then adapted into skits, songs, and all forms of theatre. The shows are performed by professional actors and allow children to see their work come to life.
Celebrating the Power of Children's Imagination
We are driven by one goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for children through creative writing and theatre. Our decision making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all our pursuits.
The collaboration between child–author and adult–performer creates a performance that is told from a child’s perspective but with the respect and training of a professional performer. The school performances are an opportunity for the child–authors to see their work performed in front of an audience of their peers, an experience that is profoundly moving and empowering for the students.
