Realizing the success of the arts and arts education in the community, Pensacola Little Theatre began taking their shows on the go with a traveling theatre troupe in 2008. PLT’s traveling theatre, Beyond Boundaries, takes theatre into underserved communities where children and parents from low-income or minority households can enjoy watching a performance or take part in a production through workshops and classes. Beyond Boundaries’ performances have also been well received by audiences at nursing homes, community centers, Title I schools, and other areas throughout the community.

Past seasons have included such plays as Cooking It!, an original musical centered on the puppet characters “Sprout”, the Brussel Sprout, and “Brock Broccoli” who both don’t understand why children don’t like them. The program was developed to address the growing problem of childhood obesity by using fun, interactive theatre to promote healthy eating. A school nutritionist supported the lessons from the show by teaching students how to make healthy meals and snacks.

You’ll almost always catch Beyond Boundaries in local libraries the weeks before performances in their children’s series (Treehouse/Acorn) with characters from the production reading to the children in costume. If you can’t come to them, they come to you!
