Book-It’s mission: Book-It Repertory Theatre is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming great literature into great theatre through simple and sensitive production and to inspiring its audiences to read.
Book-It’s Arts & Education Program’s mission: to provide an interactive relationship between youth and literature through diverse theatrical productions and educational programs that promote the joy of reading, enhance student and teacher learning, and inspire the imagination.
Even before its formal 1990 founding, Book-It has toured stories and carried its mission “to inspire people to read” from library to school to community center and back again. The company inaugurated a dedicated education department in 1999 and since that time, more than 800,000 people have seen a Book-It performance practically in their own back yards. Sometimes literally a back yard. Read more about the five components of Book-It’s prolific education programs.
