The Storytelling Guild partners with Craterian Performances to bring two free performances to children of the community. A professional puppet theater group is hired for these performances to give children, many who would not otherwise be able to attend the theater, a chance to enjoy a professional performance at no cost. Winter Program allows the Storytelling Guild to expose children to another form of storytelling, through the magic of puppets. Children are asked to bring a book donation to this event to be distributed with our ‘Pass the Book’ program.
