Performer: Storyteller Michael Caduto

Thursday, July 8 at 10:30AM in Currier Park
Popular author and master storyteller Michael Caduto brings animal folktales from around the world to life with a varied cast of humorous and dramatic characters and voices. This participatory performance shares animal myths and legends from Africa, South America, Europe and North America (an Abenaki tale). It immerses the audience in the fantastic world of animals through songs, chants, guitar, native instruments and a circle dance. Bring your singing voices and your dancing feet! Come join these tales that are sometimes funny, always moving and often end with an unexpected twist of wisdom.
