Our mission is to use comedy and storytelling to support the literacy education of children ages preschool through teen.

We perform interactive improv shows based on stories from kids, and we teach workshops for kids, families, 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 held our first StoryUP! show in 2012. Now, thousands of stories later, we continue to inspire confidence and creativity in kids.

Our programs are held at partner sites in the Philadelphia 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!
