Since 1995, Flights of Fantasy Story Theater has provided theater programming and arts education services to children, parents and teachers throughout southern California. We offer unique vaudeville-style performances as well as engaging theater workshops for students, outstanding storytimes for preschoolers and instructional Read Aloud workshops for parents. Our theatrical performances and storytimes celebrate the humor and wisdom inherent in the human experience and introduce the viewer to an array of multicultural literature. Lorrie Oshatz and Theresa Amy put a fresh spin on folk tales, fables and poetry and provide a variety of workshops and professional development that offer new strategies for learning and teaching. The performances and workshops also enhance literacy and comprehension skills while creating opportunities to build self-esteem and confidence. Our Early Literacy Readiness Project (ELRP) is a program specifically created to develop school readiness for children at preschools and Head Start sites. Our library shows demonstrate the transformational power of theater by using language to construct meaning and story to create the bridge that connects us all to the world family.
