With the support of a grant from the ARHS PGO, the ARHS Theater Company created a single-room immersive theater installation and performance for elementary school-aged students. The ARHS Theater group visited an Amherst elementary school and read a pre-selected children's book. The young students imagined new details to add to the story. Over the weekend that followed, the ARHS Theater Company created a theater installation of a key location in the book at an open storefront on Pleasant St. The children were brought through the performance and it was a huge success! The book came to life - replete with embellishments of the student's imaginings!
