Our “Act Me a Story” program provides video recordings of selected children’s book readings by professional actors of color. These videos bring preschool children in touch with caring adults who connect with them through highly acclaimed stories, reflecting and celebrating opportunities for learning and experiencing their world. Many children of our audience have limited access to books or adults to read to them. Act Me a Story was created by Washtenaw Promise in partnership with PlayZoomers, Inc. an international, online theatre company, based in Boston, MA. The videos begin and end with a lively musical theme by Christine Barton.
