"The kids loved it.  It was great to see a group come into the school with nothing but the clothes on their backs and make the stories come alive. Kids had to use their imagination.  This was an exceptional assembly."


-Amy Uebbing, Troy Union

In a generation of technology, not only is it a privilege and an honor, but a necessity to bring award winning children's literature to life - off the page, exposed and alive!"

"It is our delight to inspire children with live theatre. It is our joy to bring joy to children with meaningful literature and to help them realize the brilliance of their own imaginations!"

"I remember the first time I saw Magic Carpet Theatre.  It blew me away. This was really good theatre, tight ensemble work."
