Current Project: Easy Breezy Stories!

Easy Breezy Stories!     


Our Mission: 

To bring original short stories to children ages 7 – 11, with a focus on kindness, compassion, and acceptance. These stories come to life through mini theatrical productions, including music and dance. We hold performances in libraries, community centers, and other local settings.

What is Side By Side?

The Side By Side program empowers kids everywhere to join hands and come together through unity and compassion. Our original theme song, ‘Side By Side’, promotes diversity, acceptance, and cooperation, and our program has created a movement that empowers kids to be themselves and to embrace the differences in others.
