Each season Orlando Repertory Theatre works to curate a series of shows with stories that enlighten, entertain, and enrich the lives of family and young audiences. Our show selections, which often bring popular literary works to life, help instill a love of reading and inspire lifelong exploration and learning.

Theatre is a creative access point to enter the world of stories.

Now we invite you to continue the conversation sparked by the story we brought to life on our stage. Below are educational and creative resources to help you and your family step further into the world and themes explored in our selected show titles.
