Alphabet Soup & Gobbledy-Goop! 
The Sultan of Soup loves to cook, and we all have a great time when we travel to the Planet of Soup and help her mix up a delicious dish with our favorite flavors, colors, numbers and alphabet noodles. Not only that, we all encourage and help our friend Buddy to take a taste and learn not to be afraid to try something new! Highlighted themes & concepts: trying something new, animals, colors, numbers, counting, friendship, sharing, imagination, singing, problem solving, and character education.

The Character Construction Company:  A Character Education Series Show
This is a wacky and wonderful play that’s fast moving and filled with lots of laughter and learning! It’s all about learning how to take responsibility for one's behavior, honesty, and figuring out how to make responsible decisions. The Giant Chicken  learns not to be a 'chicken' to do the right thing, Chef Ray Sippi cooks up a special recipe for responsibility, and in the last act, members of the audience are called on stage to check out their new knowledge and participate in "Check It Out!", our stunt-filled wild game show. This show is only available as a field trip to the Delray Beach Playhouse.

The educational goals of The Character Construction Company performances are:

Goal # 1:  To engage the children in the audience in an educational and entertaining performance that will allow them to have fun and grow in many important ways.

Goal # 2:  To introduce, teach, and reinforce a variety of essential character education concepts and skills, including honesty and telling the truth; specific methods of making thoughtful, responsible decisions; the concept of taking responsibility for one's behavior;  handling disappointments and upsetting situations; a 4 step method for decision making; the concepts of friendship and empathy; and the concept that when a child cannot handle a situation by him or herself, it's appropriate for a child to turn to a trusted adult for help. The story lines and characters in this series of shows all promote respectful and positive behavior. Locomotion Theatre shows are approved by Palm Beach and Broward schools’ character education departments and prevention centers, the Anti-Defamation League. Approved Sun-Sentinel NIE Character Education Link.

The Character Education Series:  Shows for K-5th Graders

There are three comedies in this series, and each one is filled with laughter, learning, and lots of audience participation! The shows are age appropriate, really funny, and effectively introduce, teach, and reinforce a number of character education concepts. This upbeat entertaining format engages the children in the audience by having them help the characters learn to make positive choices. Every play is divided into three acts, with each act being a ‘stand-alone’ skit, so it’s just right for keeping everyone’s attention. The two actors change costumes throughout the show and play different characters in each sketch! The plays are straightforward and easy to understand as they deliver concrete methods and 'catch phrases' to help children address situations they may encounter. Approved by Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, and Miami-Dade County Schools.

Studio Theatre Teen Stories: for Grades 6-12, Young Adult & Special Needs
The Respectful Interventions Workshop Series  Book a single performance or a series of 2 or more shows.  These thought-provoking and engaging shows are age appropriate, exciting, and exactly the kind of presentation that middle, high school and college age students want to see and teachers and counselors appreciate! The presentation’s talk show format is very interactive and delivers important information in an upbeat and entertaining way. Here’s how it works: Picture looking into a classroom, the family next door's living room, or a party, and not only being able to listen in on their conversation, but also being able to give your opinion on the subject, share an insight, agree or disagree with what's being said, and truly tell them just what you think about how they are handling the situation! That's exactly what a Studio Theatre Respectful Interventions Workshop is all about: An effective, energizing, and fun presentation that opens a forum about responsible behavior, relationships, family dynamics, and subjects of interest to your group. Not only that, everyone in the audience is invited to participate! Two presenters will act out 3 or 4 short skits. After each role play, the audience participates in a guided discussion led by a licensed, experienced psychotherapist. (One of the actors is a therapist, so it’s a total of two presenters). What makes this unique is that during the discussion, the players stay in character and interact as though they were the people portrayed in the sketch! When appropriate, the psychotherapist steps out of character and provides professional insights into the situations presented. All Studio Theatre and Respectful Interventions presentations are customized for your group—you choose from our extensive list of workshops and topics, or we can develop a skit or an entire program just for you. Approved by Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, and Miami-Dade County Schools.
