Art of Reading Residency

Workshop Info


This innovative workshop was originally created for the Broward County School System and it was so incredibly successful that we now offer it statewide! The Art of Reading Residency is guaranteed to motivate, reach and teach students about the reading process.

Day One
The entire school sees performances of one of Fantasy Theatre Factory’s reading & literacy incentive programs: Fantasy Stew, Whales, Magic and Cheese... Oh My!, Bananas, Books, and PancakesLittle Monster Tales or American Stories. Each performance is followed by a Q&A session with FTF's cast of Artists-in-Education.

Day Two
Up to five workshops (one hour in length) with individual 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th grade classes. Students interact with two Fantasy Theatre Factory artist-educators. Artists will lead students through reading for expression, movement, and vocal exercises. Students will also discuss the books covered in the play, the authors and begin to rehearse and prepare play readings from the program. Students are given selections from the show to practice on their own.

Day Three
Fantasy Theatre Factory artists return for a full day to give final “reading for expression” coaching in classroom and to record and/or present many student performances!


Because of YOU and your generosity we can make a difference.

Each year FTF produces well over 500 programs that reach over 150,000 people all across South Florida, the entire state, and internationally.

Help us bring the magic of theater and the joy of learning!
