The Storycrafters

Storytelling and musical duo The Storycrafters gave two performances at Perrot on Wednesday, July 25th, 2007. Their 4 P.M. performance was for pre-schoolers, and their 7 P.M. performance was for school-age kids.  The audience loved the Storycrafters' fun and participatory musical storytelling!

Here are some photos from the event [Click on each thumbnail for a larger version]:
