Over its 40 year history TIC shows have covered a wide variety of topics including inventors and their inventions,  ancient myths, space travel, history, adaptations of world folk literature and more!

It serves as a tool for curriculum enhancement and a unique opportunity for students to discover the world from other perspectives.

What’s the story about TIC?

TIC shows are presented in an animated story-theatre style featuring imaginative props, costumes, music, and student participation followed by a lively post-performance discussion.

  • Professional actors play multiple characters and create different locations and moods through the imaginative use of props and costumes

  • Call and response student participation promotes basic group behavior skills, such as listening and observing

  • A pre-show Study Guide allows teachers to maximize the educational value of the theatre experience by providing discussion ideas, related classroom activities, post-performance questions, and bibliography


Actors set up the stage for the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble's TIC production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2015.
