Storyteller and puppeteer Priscilla Howe has traveled the world, captivating audiences of all ages.

This story is best suited for adults and children ages nine and up.

In addition, Howe will bring her popular storytelling to local schools, working primarily with students in grades K-5. A returning resident artist, Howe offers a highly dynamic program with curricular connections in language arts that allow students to explore creative self-expression.
