Romeo and Juliet
In the very opening lines of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare begs the audience  to “... with patient ears attend, what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.” EMIT’s production of Romeo and Juliet flips the opening lines on students by asking of them to not sit with “patient ears” but instead to participate in the action and help the characters sort through their toil. A play about conflicts of all kinds, EMIT’s production of Romeo and Juliet allows for students to not only ask questions of the characters, but also impact the action of the play by performing tasks that drive the story. This production is appropriate for 6th grade and up and is listed as an approved 9th grade ELA Common Core text.

La Canción en La Tormenta: The Coquí's Quest
On the small island of Borinquen, the god Juracán has become upset, causing a wild storm to ravage the beautiful rainforest. El Coqui, the tiny but mighty little frog, must restore peace to the island with the help of the audience! This interactive quest is infused with Spanish language as well as traditional Puerto Rican song, dance, and mythology. Children will learn important lessons about taking care of their environment and their feelings. This sensory friendly production is a wonderful choice for children ages 5-10 and their families.
