  • Imagine an audience
    watching a great work of literature come to life before their eyes.
  • Imagine an audience
    rapt with attention for an hour as they are taken on a journey. Without scenery or elaborate effects, the story unfolds as a single actor brings us into the world of their story.
  • Imagine an audience
    leaving a performance changed, seeing the world in a whole new way.
  • You don’t have to imagine.
  • This is what happens when you book a Literature to Life performance.

“Literature to Life always starts with a key moment of action from the story. That’s how we connect with youth. There is nowhere to hide from the story once the actor begins.”

- Wynn Handman
