Once upon a time … (Mar. 25)

March 21, 2008

Magic penguins, blood-thirsty pirates, heavy snows and kidnappers … a night out with the St. Louis Gateway Storytellers is a feast for the imagination.  You’ll find the group’s members performing individually all over town, spinning yarns at kid-centric venues like City Museum, at malls, at parties and at festival, but the place to hear a full evening of tales is the group’s every-other-month meeting.

The next one is Tuesday (Mar. 25).  The storytelling begins at 7 p.m., after the 6 p.m. business meeting, and is free to the public.  The location is the Crown Center, 8350 Delcrest Drive, St. Louis. There’s no need to register, but if you have questions, call 314.997.0250 or visit the club’s homepage.  The site also has an extensive list of storytellers for hire.

If you like what you hear, check into the 29th Annual St. Louis Storytelling Festival (April 30 to May 3).  More than 50 regional storytellers take part at venues across the region, from Laumeier Sculpture Park to the Gateway Arch.
