Ovations Offstage Cultivating Curiosity initiative places books in the hands of Maine students and provides them with a unique opportunity to experience characters from the books live on stage.


Cultivating Curiosity takes a different approach to growing children’s love of books. The program pairs reading opportunities with their School-Time-Performances, by providing each child who attends the performance a free book born from its title. Performances occur during the school day and are open to Maine  schools and homeschoolers Each performance caters to a unique age group and fits into school curriculum in a variety of ways.
