Set the tone for success with a healthy, positive school culture by bringing Michael Zerphy, a mime, clown, storyteller and theater artist, to your school! Choose from "Choices to Grow By", an assembly on character development that emphasizes making positive choices, being persistent and learning from mistakes and "The Wealth of Health...Free For All!", which explores making healthy food choices and safety in addition to the importance of making positive choices. 

Michael will offer post-performance workshops for schools as well as custom workshops on a topic of the school's choice - a series of workshops can be combined to culminate in an informal performance of the students' original work. In addition, his family performance, "Zany Acts", is available as an evening add on to your school day or for your community site, and that show can also be paired with an interactive workshop. A family night for smaller groups is also available. Additional programs for teens, adults and students with special needs are also offered and listed in the school brochure below. Email us to sign up your school!
