Story Theater Company (STC) offers quality theatrical opportunities for area children and provides them with positive role models who teach the fundamentals of theater in a welcoming environment that encourages self-confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and inclusion of all.
STC provides drop-in theater clubs and events for teens and tweens, educational theater workshops for ages 5 to 18, and three full-scale theater productions performed at Ames City Auditorium plus a production just for teen participants.
In our effort to afford everyone the opportunity to experience live theater, we donate hundreds of free tickets to area social service agencies, provide scholarship aid to participants, and offer pay-what-you-will pricing on show tickets.
Story Theater Company is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization founded in 2006. To date, we have worked with hundreds of children in performances, workshops, and events. We employ area artists and ISU Theatre students as instructors, directors, and designers. Over 50,000 audience members have seen our performances.
