Upcoming Events

Yasu Ishida origami

IN CELEBRATION OF THE 2017 SUMMER READING PROGRAM!

Prepare to be amazed, dazzled & bewildered by Story Circus with Yasu Ishida – an exciting storytelling show where stories meet circus. Can you imagine what Balloon Haiku (balloon animals coming to life with Haiku), Storygami (storytelling with Origami), & Storytelling with Magic look like? Stories will come together in visual ways, inviting audience interaction and lots of fun. After the stories, children get to make a simple magic trick that they can take home to perform. This free 45-minute program is suitable for children in preschool to grade 5. Young children must be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.
