Script To Stage
SeriesFest is bringing the award-winning Young Storytellers Script To Stage program to Denver. This is a free program for Denver-area elementary schools focused on encouraging the unique and individual voices of 5th-grade students, Young Storytellers engages students through the art of storytelling using timeless techniques of mentoring, collaboration, and performance. We provide public school students with an opportunity to write stories and see them brought to life.
The program is open to Title 1 elementary schools in the Denver metro area.
When you volunteer, you’re nothing less than a hero. The Young Storytellers program offers many opportunities to volunteer including:
Script to Stage Mentorships:
- The Script to Stage program meets once a week for ten weeks, typically for an hour during school lunchtime. Led by a volunteer Head Mentor, each session is a mixture of creative gameplay and one-on-one writing time.
- Big Shows are a one-off, 3-hour commitment involving the performance of scripts written by Script to Stage participants.
What really matters is that you are interested in helping guide young storytellers. Please contact us and we will find a schedule and role that highlights your skills. Welcome to the wonderful world of Young Storytellers!

Young Storytellers sparks creative self-discovery through storytelling. Our programs highlight young people as the center of their own narratives, emphasize that their stories matter, and celebrate their unique voices as the ones telling them.
In elementary school, we use storytelling to help young people explore their creativity and imagination. In middle school, we use storytelling to explore their goals for the future and what challenges might stand in their way. In high school, we use storytelling to explore the impact their voice can have in their community – and, more broadly, the world.
