About Creative Clubhouse Stories: 

Creative Clubhouse Stories is a digital, interactive, & accessible storytime class that mixes books you love with theater games your little one will love – without having to leave home! Created in response to COVID-19, the class explores books with big topics through theater games. At NYCCT, our goal is to foster empathetic, creative, and independent thinkers who make a positive impact on their world. That’s why, when picking books for Creative Clubhouse Stories, we picked stories that teach emotional intelligence, community building, and responsible decision-making in service of our mission to promote children’s literacy and social development through arts-in-education programming and professional theater productions.
