Best of Stories that Soar! 2021- now streaming!

While it’s been a roller coaster ride of a year, there is no stopping the magic of Best of Stories that Soar! 2020-2021.

We were thrilled to see so many of you at the Mercado San Agustin, and are now excited to present the entire show streaming! Scroll below to see all the stories, read the program, and meet the creative team.

You’ll see stories written by local youth, produced by the Stories that Soar! ensemble and shown on a big screen from the comfort of your car. What better way to cap off this strange school year than by celebrating the creativity and resilience of the students in our community.

The Magic Box family has spent the year virtually visiting schools to ask students to feed them their original stories. Students from twelve schools in four districts (Tucson Unified, Sunnyside Unified, Flowing Wells, and Amphitheater) wrote over 2600 original stories, resulting in over 275 videos. Instead of the traditional live theatrical performance at each school, this year students were treated to a mini YouTube film festival featuring their stories, as well as questions for Curiosity Box and facts for Baby Box. Stories from each school will be featured at the event.
