Assemblies & Trunk Shows

We Tell Stories Trunk Shows  

With our iconic, antique steamer trunk on center stage, three We Tell Stories actors weave a world of extraordinary stories using everyday items as costumes and props. Audience members participate from their seats, then join the actors to play an integral part in every performance. WTS performances offer family entertainment that is both entertaining and culturally enriching.  

We Tell Stories trunk shows are 45 minutes in length, and are generally comprised of three distinct stories. In addition to school assemblies, WTS also performs its signature trunk shows at festivals, family days, libraries, museums and parks. The WTS repertoire includes:
