13th Annual Storytelling & Music Festival - Mohegan Colony
Add to Calendar 10-08-2013 10-08-2013 15 13th Annual Storytelling & Music Festival Everybody loves a good story! Kids and adults of every age will be enchanted and entertained by traditional and original stories related by a host of nationally acclaimed storytellers at the 13th Annual Mohegan Colony Storytelling and Music Festival on Saturday, August 10. Beginning with a full afternoon of professional storytelling on two stages simultaneously (Stories for Grown-ups under the huge outdoor Pavilion, and Stories for Families and Children in the Stone Schoolhouse adjacent, from 1-5:30pm) the event extends into the evening with Twilight Tales (aka Ghost Stories) around flickering candle lights beginning at 7:30pm, at Mohegan Colony's country setting. Oracle Award winning Storycrafters, Barry Marshall and Jeri Burns, PhD, will present their acclaimed one-hour "Snow Queen" with music; Christopher Agostino, fascinating artist, author, storyteller will transform volunteer audience members' faces into exotic canvases while his unique telling of world and original tales unfolds. Bob Reiser will share the secret of the Egg Cream! Thelma Ruffin Thomas, a stunning and riveting teller known for her repertoire of biblical tales, will share some. Robin Bady, JJ Reneaux NSN Emerging Artist Award winner, will tell a true cautionary tale on bullying called "Every Day is Basil Houpis Day," Julie Herrera, author of the new anthology, "Old China Through the Eyes of a Storyteller," comes from Colorado, and will be available to sign books. Judith Heineman, Illinois Humanities Council "Road" Scholar who has a story in that book, and Sheila Harris, from Remsen, NY, will do a medley with Julie of Chinese stories they collected while on the same NSN Storytelling Delegation trip to China in 2008. In addition, Sheila will serve up a Teddy Bear's picnic - for boys as well as girls, and present a charming tabletop puppet theatre and piggy-back songs. There are always surprise guests! Music performances feature Mohegan Colony's John and Ellen Monten's fun, jazzy, swingin' duo, "No Soap." Additionally, Christopher Agostino, artist, author, storyteller, will offer a workshop 10am-12pm for storytellers of all levels, educators, librarians, and the general public. "Before Cave Walls - the Story on Our Skin," is a dynamic interactive presentation of a primal art, the art of transformation - exploring the origins and cultural significance of masks and body art, and how he uses these arts to bring to life stories in a unique performance style. The festival will be held under the shade of a spacious pavilion with outdoor picnic areas available on the grounds. Pre-registration is requested. Reservations for all segments of the festival are recommended. Family and Home School rates are available. Rain or shine. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=141218 Mohegan Colony true DD/MM/YYYY
