Aurora Children's Playhouse presents

The Flying Turtle and Other Animal Folktales

Aug 24, 2019

Barry Stewart Mann


Ever since people could see and talk, we’ve been fascinated by animals, and told wonderful stories about them – stories to explain the natural world, to entertain each other, and to teach our basic values.  Come travel the world with storyteller Barry Stewart Mann, exploring tales from as close as the Cherokee mountains, and as far as China and Australia.There will be lively retellings of a diverse array of folklore, replete with playful puppets, colorful costumes and props, and plenty of audience participation and volunteer opportunities.  We’ll howl, roar, cackle and . . . fly!
