Not your typical children’s theatre, but rather a dynamic duo of theatre artists whose shows encourage students and their families to think about themselves and the world around them. Don Gruel and Noel Holland creatively adapt their scripts from literature, history, and legend and also offer original pieces; their performances are enthusiastic, entertaining, and thought- provoking.
Classroom theatre workshops are available on Tools of the Actor, Auditioning, Musical Theatre, Playwriting, Stage Movement, and Stage Combat. A Conflict Resolution workshop is also available and Don and Noel will also custom design a workshop for specific classes and topics. Workshops last 45 minutes.

Florida Treasures: A “Viva Florida” History Exploration
Two tourists arrive on a Florida beach carrying all the necessities for a relaxing beach vacation – beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. When they discover a treasure-chest full of historical artifacts, they are magically transported back in time in a fun-filled journey through 500 years of Florida History. Each segment of the show is creatively staged using the modern beach gear in combination with the trunk of historical items to create the scenes - the beach umbrella becomes Ponce De Leon’s sword and the two beach chairs are stacked to create the bow of a ship.
The audience will watch the re-enactment of historical events such as:
- the exploration of Ponce de Leon and other explorers
- the settlement of Pensacola (Florida’s “almost” oldest city)
- the establishment of St. Augustine
- the “original” Pocahontas story
Lively comic characters, audience participation, and original music make Florida Treasures fun for the entire family. This show will be available for both outdoor and indoor performances in a variety of performance venues.
