We are so pleased to offer you the line-up for our 16th Annual Storytelling Festival. We will again have performances on four Wednesday mornings in July at 10am at the Crystal Coast Civic Center, Morehead City, and also four afternoon shows at 2pm at the Bethlehem Methodist Church, corner of Bogue Loop Rd. and Rt. 24 in Bogue. Science and storytelling were accidentally mixed. Here is what happened. Storytelling and Exciting science experiments come together into an unprecedented theatrical experience. We are generously supported by the Friends of the Bogue Banks Public Library, the Friends of the Carteret County Public Library and the Friends of the Western Carteret Public Library, without which these programs would not be possible. We deeply appreciate their considerations for our Storytelling Festival. Stories are for school aged kids. For more details, 252-247-4660
