CPH is proud to commission and produce professional touring theatre with relevant themes for young audiences like anti-bullying, racial tolerance, socio-economic inequality and conflict resolution.
To eliminate financial and geographic barriers of attending our theatres, CPH brings theatre education programs directly to schools.
Our professional touring program presents relevant themes for young audiences. Following each performance, our arts-integrated workshops provide excellent starting points for engaging discussions around conflict resolution and inclusion. At CPH, we value theatre as an essential resource for developing empathy, broadening understanding, and creating meaningful connections for children, youth, and adults.
Following each performance, our arts-integrated workshops provide excellent starting points for engaging classroom discussions while fulfilling the Common Core State Standards.

Jack and his mother live happily ever after. That’s usually how the story ends. But in this imaginative world of shady deals, magical beans and break-beat music, happily ever after is just the beginning for Jack. When his farm can’t feed him, his community can’t support him and his own mother can’t care for him, Jack takes matters into his own hands and steals a golden goose. But the eggs that goose is laying turn his world upside down, and Jack goes on a journey that will change his life forever.
For young audiences, grades K through 5 (ages 5 - 10)
Virtually in your classroom, learning group or at home!
