Fall 2012 — Someone has been calling the Amazing Food Detective to report health crimes, but who is responsible? And who is making these mysterious calls? Join the Amazing Food Detective on his newest caper—inside the body! This playful and interactive production highlights how healthy food choices, physical activity, and limiting screen time contribute to an individual’s total health. Join the Amazing Food Detective and his unsuspecting suspects on a magical journey full of animated rhymes, catchy songs, and surprising puppets.
Though focusing on the same central themes as our 2009 production, this is a brand new adventure for The Amazing Food Detective. Our schedule fills up quickly. Book your performance now at etpnorthwest.org. Approximately 35 minutes long; minimum audience size is 50.

In the ACTIVE VOICES residency model, professional theatre artists partner with a classroom teacher to facilitate a theatre-based unit of study. This series of lessons will help students explore essential skill or concept standards in the area of health and wellness. Through theatre, students are able to engage their whole selves in these topics that affect their lives, and then to use that knowledge as they make choices that impact not only themselves but also their families and communities.
We develop our lesson plans for ACTIVE VOICES in response to the conversations we have with schools. By collaborating with teachers in this way, we strive to create impactful learning experiences for the students we serve. This fall, for example, we are partnering with Health Teachers to build interpersonal communication and decision-making skills in the mental health units of their curriculum.
We are currently seeking more partner schools in NW Oregon and SW Washington for Spring 2013. If you are interested in ACTIVE VOICES Teaching Artists working at your school – or just want additional information about this exciting new project— contact Tony Fuemmeler at email@example.com.
