Water Science Through Theater: Free Assembly Programs for 3rd–5th grade students!

Interested in scheduling a show? Click here for details.

Teachers: If you work with 3–5th grade students in the Portland metro area, let us help bring your science curriculum to life this spring!

The Water Bureau offers three FREE and creative school assembly programs designed to teach kids about where their water comes from, how it gets to their homes, and how to use it wisely. Our assembly programs are a great way to compliment your STEM curriculum with high-quality learning.

We are now actively booking shows for WaterThe Musical, a school assembly program specially created for grades 3 through 5.

This 30-minute musical weaves together “stuck-in-your-head” musical numbers with a sprinkling of pop culture references (think Stranger Things and Hamilton), and a solid dose of history and science education.

Plan for Earth Day: April 22, 2019

April is already here! Help build excitement around your Earth Day curriculum by inviting Water—The Musical into your school. The show’s catchy tunes and deep dive into Portland’s drinking water history will help students connect to their local water sources and understand clean water as a vital resource around the world.

Schedule a Show

Contact Amy Gray of Thinking People’s Theatre at or (503) 236-8888 x111 to reserve your date.

Programs are open to all elementary schools within the Portland Water Bureau service area (preferred audience size of approximately 150–200 students).

We also offer school assembly programs for grades K through 2. These shows are booked for this season but contact our performers to be on our list for next year.
