Young Audience Outreach Tour


Book & Lyrics by Lojo Simon
Music by Ian LeRoy
Directed by Melissa Firlit

Inspired by myth, fairy tale and Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Seeds of Change fosters environmental literacy through the story of an ornery young girl who leaves the isolated Isle of Oro and embarks on a journey of self-discovery. This story explores topics in environmental science, deforestation, ocean plastic, and habitat loss through wonder and empowerment.

Celebrating 35 years of bringing excellent bilingual musical theatre to schools throughout the Southwest! CRT’s Young Audience Outreach Tour brings professional musical theatre performances to more than 24,000 children in rural and underserved communities by keeping fees low, and connecting to school curriculum. After the performance each child receives an original book that reinforces the play’s themes.

“All I want to say is thank you for all of your hard work you did to make the theatre and when I grow up I want to be like you.” Tristin, student, Clifton, CO.

“Creede is phenomenal! I’ve had the privilege of seeing their performances for approximately 10 years now! Every year is a great treat for our kids and staff.” Victor Gonzales, Principal, La Luz, NM.

“The students were positively engaged with the performance. They were laughing, responded to the actors and left wanting to read books. What teachers could ask for anything more?” Cynthia Bills, Teacher, High Rolls, NM.


To support your community’s literacy endeavors, each student receives a free children’s book after our shows. The book reinforces the themes of the play while making reading fun! In addition, teachers receive a study guide used before and/or after the performance.
