Our mission is to use comedy and storytelling to help develop the literacy skills of children ages preschool through teen.

We offer interactive improv shows, workshops for kids and families, and trainings for parents and educators.

Our team is made up of some of the region’s best performers, comedians and teaching artists, whose energy and talent get kids excited to create original stories. We first started teaching StoryUP! workshops in 2011. Now, over 1,000 stories later, we continue to inspire confidence and creativity in kids.

Our programs are held at partner sites in the region, and we travel to locations in the tri-state area.

As part of our mission, we provide free programs on a regular basis to designated partner organizations serving at-risk children and families in Philadelphia. By your patronage of StoryUP! programs, you make our volunteer work possible. Thank you!
