      Description of show:

Folktales are performed using an array of props, humor and song. Then it’s time for Story Theater. About 4- 6 child volunteers come up and perform a story or two with fun props. The rest of the audience fully participates in joining in the call and response parts of the tales. At the end they learn the Story Soup Song... singing the importance of everyone’s story.

Children are encouraged to become the hero of their own story by reading, and learning to be who they want to be. They are also encouraged after the show to learn stories from their family and ancestors, breathing life into the lost oral traditions of culture. This creates a rich and personal connection to stories and their lives.
