Children are born to play.
It’s how they learn to navigate their world, make choices,
and define who they are. When we play, we are “in the moment,”
just as we aim to be “in the moment” when we try on characters and act out stories.
We invent dialogue and action that surprises us and takes us beyond storylines.
Our imaginings bring make-believe worlds to life!
Play makes thp unique!
It’s our springboard to learn and grow.

stories alive! Interactive story adventures for all ages! With thp, children’s literature jumps from page to stage, from folk tales to picture books to mixed up fairy tales, we bring stories to life. You’ll join as a player in the story or an observer who watches the adventure unfold. Bring a friend, a parent, a grandpa, a cousin.
Look for thp at your local CT library!
At the heart of thp’s work is play, using our imaginations together to explore the world of the story.
Song, speech, movement, theatre games, and improvisation accompany us on this journey.
It’s a play-filled adventure that shapes us and changes us each time we set out together as treehouse players.
