THE LITTLE COMPANY
The Little Company, a trademark of the Morehead State University Theatre Program, is a touring troupe that performs a play for schools in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, with the main focus being on the service region of Morehead State University. In addition to the production, The Little Company also conducts workshops targeting the drama core content mandated by the Kentucky Department of Education.
Supported by the W. Paul and Lucille Caudill Little Foundation and Morehead State University’s Center for Regional Engagement, Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Department of Music, Theatre and Dance, The Little Company visits up to 100 schools each year, performing for 15,000 to 30,000 students.
While this program serves teachers and K-12 schools in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, it also offers MSU students valuable career experience performing plays intended for young audiences, teaching workshops to K-12 students and working with a touring production.
