April 22, 2018 All Day
The Stone Soup Storytelling Festival is built upon the various versions of the traditional old story of Stone Soup. The moral of the story is that by working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good is achieved. A “visitor” comes into a village and has no food. The visitor builds a fire, throws on a kettle of water and adds to it a stone. The villagers add what they can. He ends up being able to feed the entire village.
Our Stone Soup storytellers and New Voices come from all around the nation. They represent a variety of cultures and storytelling genres. The 2018 Stone Soup Storytelling featured tellers are: Leeny Del Seamonds, Norm Brecke, Pat Nease, Laura Packer and Mary Lou Williams. The Stone Soup Storytelling Festival begins on Friday, April 20. The public storytelling sessions start at noon on Fridayand continue through Sunday. There will be fables, fairy tales, ghost stories, historical stories, lies and personal tales. Performers run the gamut from nationally acclaimed tellers to novice tellers and amateurs competing for their chance to shine.
Come experience the time of your life- just listening to the sound of a voice.
