Invisible Feelings

Presented only in combination with When You’re Seeing Stars. In addition to a performance of Trudy Ludwig’s popular children’s book, The Invisible Boy, this program explores the components of empathy. Students revisit key story moments to offer their ideas of how to help the characters make friends and show empathy to those around them.
Experiential Learning

Our multi-talented facilitators create open dialogue and tools to navigate social issues through storytelling, improvisational theatre techniques, and interactive exercises. Audiences come away with new perspectives on the health benefits of laughter and a greater understanding of the needs and health challenges of people with limited financial resources.
