The Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre is excited to present a unique new format for schools to use theatre as a way to help kids make good decision on their own, and give them the tools to handle any challenge that may come their way!
The Imagination Station is designed to use Social-Emotional Learning to support students’ development of 21st century skills. The Imagination Station provides everything you will need for a successful assembly, including sets, costumes, props and all technical necessities. You bring the kids, and we’ll put on the show!
In addition to the performances, The Imagination Station also offers a Study Guide to assist teachers and administrators in continuing a dialogue with students. Additionally, actors are available for classroom visits after the performances to talk with students, answer their questions, and talk about life in the arts!
Each 40-minute Imagination Station assembly features a fully produced children’s musical that includes singing, dancing, as well as plenty of audience interaction, all while addressing topics such as Bullying, Cyber Awareness, Self-Esteem, Better Eating, Hygiene and much, much more!
Each school has the option to choose between four assembly themes that best fit the needs of their student body. Then, Dutch Apple does the rest. We arrive with everything! Sets, props, costumes and all technical necessities are set up in the location selected by the school. Once the set-up is complete, the fun begins as students are fully immersed in a world where anything is possible.
