Many schools invite Poetry Alive! for assemblies each year or every other year. As a result, many students see us many times. We provide distinctive programs from year to year to ensure that students see different shows.
THE FOLLOWING SYLLABUS IS THE PROPOSED 2019-2020 SHOW LISTS. UNTIL WE FINALIZE ALL PERMISSIONS THIS LISTING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
The 2019-2020 programs for grades 9-12, 6-8, 3-5, and K-2 audiences are listed below, in show order. This program is subject to change based on show time allotted or other needs that your school may have.
Your assigned team will contact you at least one week prior to the show date to confirm the details of our visit.
The poem books are available online!
Follow the links to copies of poems or author biographies on the internet. Please note, we are still in the process of searching for links to both poems and authors. If the poem you want is not linked, you can visit the Public Domain link for that show to see if the poem is available there, or click the Bibliography link for where we've found the poem in print. Every effort has been made to trace the ownership of all copyrighted material and to secure the necessary permissions to perform the selections. In the event of any question arising as to the use of any material, Poetry Alive!, while expressing regret for any inadvertent error, will be happy to make the necessary corrections in future performances.
We seek ONLY performance rights, not reprint rights, so we are unable to copy and distribute print versions of poems that are not in public domain.
