Over the years, Child’s Play has created commissioned shows for various sponsors. Commissioned shows can be made to order.
At Microsoft, we created a writing contest with the specific theme of illustrating the benefits of a website. At Target, we created a program to coincide with their Honor Your Teacher project. And, at Kraft Foods, we developed a multi-year program, working with them as an Arts Partner for over five years.
The Bushnell Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut commissioned us year after year to create a show based on the “world premiere” writings of their local children for their Language Arts Festival. Similarly, for the Westport Country Playhouse in Westport, Connecticut, we developed a production called Something of Our Own, showcasing writings from children in their community.
Commissioned shows bring benefits to both Child’s Play and our partners and are a win/win.
