Children’s Theater—ONLINE!

Stories to Stay Home With—Occidental Children’s Theater Online!

We can’t perform live, but we can still tell stories!

We’re creating new versions of old favorites! Fresh solo storytelling combined with archived video action and photos guaranteed to entertain you wherever you are! Watch or listen to stories that have delighted you over the last 25 years!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

In the spirit of the season, Occidental Children’s Theater offers you this new version of our 2006 story Tiger in the Forest, Anansi in the Web, told by the inimitable Tristan Waldron. For those of you who have missed us as much as we have missed performing for you, we hope this will tide you over into the next year.

Please feel free to share this link with friends, family and people with whom you have only a passing acquaintance. The more the merrier!

We are all looking forward to a bright new year and to performing in person for you as soon as possible—this summer, we hope! Fingers crossed and tangled in anticipation!

All the best and many happy excitements to everyone!

Jamie Angell,
Artistic Director
