OSKAR returns in Spring of 2017

OSKAR returns in 2017 with two fun shows!

Ideal for grades K – 5, OSKAR AND THE COUNTLESS COSTUME CHANGES and OSKAR AND THE BIG BULLY BATTLE! will tour from February 20 – March 31, 2017.

The ongoing series of OSKAR plays for young audiences has been touring schools throughout the Bay Area since 2006 and has reached more than 100,000 students. The plays—which tackle bullying, resiliency, and empathy—have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from students, teachers, administrators, and parents. While all the OSKAR plays deal with their subject matter in a humorous fashion, they have made a serious impact on student behavior.
