Oesterreich describes the ECU Storybook Theatre, a program created seventeen years ago by Patricia \"Patch\" Clark, an associate professor in the ECU School of Theatre and Dance. Basically a storybook is chosen and professor and students turn it into a play. The group began performing at Barnes & Noble and later expanded to other venues like Washington's Turnage Theatre and public schools in the surrounding area. In summer of 2012, Clark and some of her students will travel to Iraq to perform.
