Summer Reading: Act!vated Story Theatre LIVE!

11:00 AM - 11:30 AM Friday, August 28, 2020


Join us for a special LIVE session with the actors following the performance!  Learn more about the stories, how the show was filmed and get acting and American Sign Language tips.


Act!vated Story Theatre presents two tales staged for imaginative kids who love stories. The Tortoise and the Hare: Drink tea and play tennis with the overconfident, tap-dancing Hare as you root for the slow and steady Tortoise to win the race. Hina Moves to the Moon: Come along for the ride as Hina makes her own way in the world and gets a special invitation from her friend, the Moon.


The Act!vated Actors pull out all the stops to engage, delight and educate young audiences. Hula, ukulele, acrobatic tricks, spinning poi balls, silly costumes, comedy and American Sign Language bring these stories to life before a giant, over-sized book.

We invite children and their grownups to join us from home for a show presented on Zoom.

Virtual Summer Reading Programs are free and open to the public and are not recorded.

Summer Reading is sponsored by the Cambridge Public Library Foundation, Friends of the Cambridge Public Library, East Cambridge Savings Bank, the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
