See shows and pricing below:
TEAM PLAYER MODE by Bethany Wallace Available virtually for the 2021-2022 school year Today’s mission: start at a new school and make some friends. After Ben moves in with his dad he finds out life at his new school is way different. Everyone makes fun of his backpack and they all play that new adventure video game. If Ben can just learn how to play and complete a mission he’ll be invited to join The 5th Grade Gamers. But between his opponents in the fantastical video game world and the students at school, Ben’s going to need the power of the three R’s: Recognizing, Reporting and Refusing bullying behavior and the teamwork of his gaming friends to complete his mission.
SUPER SCHOOL by Bethany Wallace Available virtually for the 2021-2022 school year Your favorite heroes from Camp Super Friend are back for a new adventure! It’s Marvel’s first day at Asteroid Academy and Jet introduces him to Danrelle, a girl with invisibility power, and Tilly, a girl with super-strength and a temper to match. When Danrelle uses her power to steal Tilly’s rocket ball and bully her into losing her temper, Tilly’s reaction puts her in danger of being suspended. Can Tilly learn to manage her emotions in time? Will the students of Asteroid Academy learn the power of the three R’s: Recognizing, Reporting and Refusing Bullying Behavior before their actions cause superhero-sized trouble?
Allies from Outer Space by Bethany Wallace Available in-person or virtually for the 2021/22 school year
Jeepers creepers! The aliens are coming to school, and they never shower! At least that’s the gossip when an alien spaceship makes an emergency landing on earth. While waiting for repairs, the alien queen on board sends her daughter to the local school with a mission: to find out if humans are intolerant of differences and if they use their technology to bully others. Will the students at Galaxia Elementary treat Princess Komodo with respect despite her tail and webbed fingers? Or will their bullying behavior force the queen to take drastic measures against bullying and wipe out the earth’s technology for good?!

In-person: The plays need a level, unobstructed acting area that measures at least 24 feet in width by 18 feet in depth.
Virtually: Taproot uses Vimeo for our virtual assembly. Some schools have restricted access to this site for students using school-owned devices. Our recommendation is to allow students to access Vimeo for the scheduled viewing time. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a different streaming site at this time due to privacy rules.
Taproot Theatre Company has toured educational plays to students since 1985 and reaches more than 100,000 students annually. TTC is a member of Theatre Puget Sound and Theatre Communications Group, the national service organization for nonprofit professional theatres. Founded in 1976, TTC tells stories of hope, serving the Pacific Northwest through live theatre and educational programs.
Our scripts are guided by Second Step Curriculum.
Taproot Theatre acknowledges that we live, work and play on the unceded and traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, specifically the Duwamish, and that we occupy this land. This acknowledgement does not take the place of authentic relationships with Indigenous communities but serves as a first step in honoring the land we occupy and resisting the erasure of Indigenous past, present and future.
