Celebrating our 35th anniversary season in 2020-21, ArtsPower National Touring Theatre is one of America’s most respected producers of professional touring theatre for young and family audiences. We adapt books for young readers into musicals and dramas and work with many of America’s most beloved authors, including Judy Blume, Lois Lowry, E.L. Konigsburg, and Paula Danziger.

ArtsPower Theatre On Demand is our online series of ArtsPower’s acclaimed, full-length performances on video. We offer two different programs: Family Edition, that focuses primarily on the performances of our productions, and School Edition, a multiple-lesson, academic course featuring our comprehensive Study Buddys that provide a full complement of Core Curriculum-based, literacy-building activities in support of the performances. Access to the Family and School Edition courses you choose ends on June 30, 2021.


Our School Edition courses bring you and your students, in a virtual classroom, Core Curriculum-based, multiple-lesson courses built around our musical theatre productions. Designed to promote learning in the performing arts, language arts, history, and character education, these courses feature a full-length performance of an ArtsPower production, plus:

  • Our comprehensive, grade-specific Study Buddys that provide engaging, literacy-building and visual arts activities, created around each production. 
  • Fun song and dance instructional videos.
  • Insightful video interviews with the books’ authors, our actors, and members of our creative teams.
  • Animated book read-along videos for our young viewers.
  • Our own Student Gallery page where your students can post their artwork and videos.


Our Family Edition courses offer children and their families the chance to see our literature-based musicals and dramas – sure to delight children ages 3 through 12 – online! In addition to a full-length performance of an ArtsPower production, the Family Edition courses include fun activities the family can complete together.


"I signed my five year-old daughter up for Chicken Dance: Family Edition and she loved it! She loved the bright costumes and fun songs, and the show is funny and just right for her age. We also had a great time learning how to sing and dance the 'Chicken Dance' and watching the book read-along."
