ArtsPower was recently named as one of America’s top 12 touring theatre companies “that make a difference” across the United States by Backstage.com. Backstage is the largest online casting platform for actors and theatre personnel in the United States.

In the Backstage.com article, ArtsPower was cited as, “bringing quality theatrical programming to kids and families in schools, regional theaters, and community centers for 30 years. The company aims to actively engage and challenge children and adults with its lively programming, inspiring audiences to think more creatively, feel more deeply, and react more compassionately. Prominent children’s authors including Judy Blume and Lois Lowry have partnered with ArtsPower to create stage adaptations of their work, and the company provides educational guides to teachers and community leaders to jump-start discussion. Look out for the 2016–2017 season, including the musicals ‘Laura Ingalls Wilder,’ ‘Dog Loves Books,’ and ArtsPower’s very first production, ‘Four Score and Seven Years Ago.’”
