These short stories celebrate the spirit of the season! Learn about putting others first in O’Henry’s tale “The Gift of the Magi.” In the Indian folktale “The Drum,” the focus is on generosity and the power of giving. And this rendition of “Stone Soup” stresses the value of sharing and helping others. Perfect for the holidays!

10:00 am – The Tale of the Pig

Presented by Attic Salt Theatre Company

A talking pig? This is no Wilbur. This pig has some VERY powerful magic! Some puppetry and two actors playing a lot of different parts help bring this European folktale to life. The Tale of the Pig is a classic with an important lesson, but maybe none so important as “There’s nothing scarier than a powerful pig.”
