For several years we have been invited to perform our productions for pre-school audiences. While our shows were not written or staged for this age level, many sponsors liked the idea of a "theatre" presentation of familiar stories. Understanding the attention span and subject matter for that age group, we produced familiar stories that were about 10 to 15 minutes in length and can present two or three stories with an introduction and follow up reviews with the audience and a "meet and greet the actors" afterward.
