Book-It Repertory Theatre

Book-It Repertory Theatre’s Arts and Education Program is dedicated to inspiring people of all ages to read. The program tours a diverse range of stories to schools, libraries, and community venues throughout Washington State; conducts long-term residencies in schools; offers teacher professional development; and presents low-cost student matinées of Book-It’s mainstage shows. All our work is adapted in the unique Book-It Style®, where the narrative is brought to life by the characters in the story.

The Book-It Style helps students connect  with books on multiple levels as they ask questions, exchange ideas, and make meaning our of what they read, see, and hear–all while being “up on their feet.” The entire program is closely aligned with research-based reading instruction, Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts, and state standards in theatre.
