This site was created with award-winning educational theatre innovator Douglas Love. Three-time parent's choice and Emmy-award nominated creator/producer of Disney's "Out of the Box" television series, HBO's "Jammin' Animals," and author of more than 20 books and plays for children, Love has produced live educational theatere with standards-based curriculum for millions of students as Producing Artistic Director of Walden Media's Walden Family Playhouse and San Francisco's Family Stage. The site also features original plays from Professor Albert Cullum and Dr. David Almeida, pioneers in educational reader's theatre. Professor Cullum was one of the first public school teachers to teach core curriculum using theatre and was the focus of the Emmy-nominated film A Touch of Greatness, which examined his inspiring work in the classroom. Dr. Almeida found his pedagogy in reader's theatre and after implementing it in the classroom, saw his students' interest and engagement increase exponentially, their grades rise, and their reading skills improve.
