"Find what lights a Spark in you, so that you in your own way can Light the World."  -Oprah

Through professional, live theatre, Spark elevates the potential of children by honoring both individuality and unity, encouraging self-empowerment and inspiring social change. 

THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Spark will be touring 1 production in April-May 2022, offering 1 production as a socially distanced field trip, and offering 1 production as a digital assembly to accommodate the varying needs of schools during the time.

Our assembly programs are professional performances for young audiences touring NE Ohio for schools and community centers. These touring Productions provide the same creative and courageous storytelling as traditional shows, but in a convenient traveling model to visit locations and populations where bus travel is too difficult or expensive. We bring everything to you!

Each production includes:

  • 45-60 minute live performance (or pre-recorded for POSTERS & FLIP FLOPS)

  • Question & Answer session with the actors (in-person or live on Zoom)

  • Study Guide with activities and information corresponding to Ohio Dept. of Education State Standards.
