Stories Alive!

Fun & Character-Building Stories

For Grades K-5* | 60 minutes | Up to 200 Students | $300

Stories Alive! is a fresh approach to the age-old tradition of storytelling. Classic and contemporary tales both spring to life as storyteller George Halitzka puts your students in the spotlight for a high-energy, interactive assembly program. George combines audience participation, compelling narratives, and a unique, dramatic style into one exciting program.

During the show, he’ll bring a wide range of stories vividly to life — from fairy tales to true stories from his own experience. Plus, every performance has a character education connection. Ask about our discount when you book more than one program at the same school or organization.

*A Note to Preschool Educators: Stories Alive! is recommended for elementary students. If you’d like to bring Pre-K students (older 4s and 5s) to a performance along with the “big kids,” they may do all right, but be prepared to take them out partway through if they lose attention. The show is too long for younger preschoolers (3s and younger 4s), and several of the activites will go over their heads. Our goal is to bring your kids a positive experience, and our experience has shown that very young children don’t yet have the attention span to enjoy the program.
