Celebrate the season with stories from around the world!  Take a moment away from all of the hustle and bustle to sit back and enjoy as jolly ol’ storyteller Lindsay Bonilla reaches into her storytelling bag and pulls out the perfect story gifts for you.  Discover the beauty of giving in “Rabbit’s Gift” from China and meet some mischievous trolls in “The Very Big Christmas Kitty” from Norway.  This interactive performance is perfect for families and designed to bring out the child in all of us!
