Rocks! by Melanie Godsey
NEW for the 2024-2025 school year.

S’mores, stargazing, swimming—Jamie’s family promises him that Camp Obsidian is a hidden gem. And when he makes friends with Casey on the first day, he knows this camp could rock. But when Casey’s jealousy spreads like poison ivy, Jamie gets caught between a rock and a hard place. Is Jamie really being bullied? Or is it all a harmless prank? The other campers and Jasper, the down-to-earth counselor, will leave no stone unturned to make it the best summer ever.

1-hour presentation including performance and actor-led talkback.

Rocks! Explores:

  • Bullying Prevention

  • How to be an Upstander

  • Celebrating Differences

  • Empathy

Story of an Off-Brand Band by Michelle Lang-Raymond
NEW for the 2024-2025 school year.

Everyone’s ready to rock and roll to the sound of the American dream—except one. When the members of The Preamble go on tour, the band is living the dream, except that the guitarist is treated differently. If each of them truly matters, then this band has a decision to make. In this poignant metaphor for Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech, the band must figure out how and if the show will go on.

1-hour presentation including performance and actor-led talkback.

Education Goals:

  • Personal and Social Responsibility
  • Being an Ally
  • Respecting Others
  • Celebrating Differences

Being a kid is hard! Dealing with bullying and disrespect makes it even harder. Using principles from the Committee for Children’s “Second Step” bullying prevention programs, Taproot Theatre Company’s touring productions equip students with the skills they need to stand up to bullying, solve problems and form lasting friendships.

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.
