Stories & Songs from Around the World
Most popular show!
A show that will delight and inspire audiences of all ages! April speaks and sings a tapestry of universal themes of friendship, fairness, patience, courtesy, sharing, bravery, sacrifice, hard work paying off and love using folktales, tall tales and tail tales (animal stories); some old, some new. April's story chest holds stories from across the continents as well as traditional stories found right around here in the US. Come with her and visit South Africa, Jamaica & The Caribbean, Mexico, Russia, India, The United Kingdom, Haiti, Nigeria, China, Scandinavia, South America and many, many more. Audience participation is definitely requested.
