Playmakers produces three professional tours each year!
All three tours are original pieces written by local artists from our community.
Spring Elementary School Tours
The Spring Elementary School Tour travels to schools throughout Louisiana during late February, March, April, and May during the spring school semester. The production, an original musical comedy, targets educational interests for students in kindergarten through fourth grade. This tour offers a Teacher’s Resource Guide that can be used in the classroom for further instruction. Performances can be scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Summer Neighborhood Tour
Playmakers’ Summer Neighborhood Tour brings an adapted or original show to libraries, churches, and community centers throughout Louisiana. This tour is performed by local artists from the community and is coordinated with the parish librarians throughout south Louisiana. One of the goals of the summer tour program is to aid in promoting library attendance while offering entertainment for children and families.
Wally Wise Guy Mini Safety Tour
Students love to see Wally Wise Guy, a huge turtle, as he dances around the stage instructing Sally on what to do during a chemical emergency. This tour also has a learning guide that can be used in the classroom for further teacher instruction. Wally tours in the fall to East Baton Rouge, Ascension, and St. James’ parishes.
