In her one-women production, Stories & Songs in the Oral Tradition, Charlotte weaves together stories from the West African countries of Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, and Mali for our youngest audiences. Exploring the lessons learned from and relationships between humans, animals, and our natural environments, Stories & Songs in the Oral Tradition is filled with moments of audience participation. Come ready to clap, sing, and help tell the stories!
A ticket to Guild Hall’s KidFEST @CMEE provides entry into a free pre-show workshop beginning at 4:30 pm. Designed and led by educators at both Guild Hall & CMEE, this workshop will have audience members create hand puppets of the characters and symbols explored in Charlotte Blake Alston’s, Stories & Songs in the Oral Tradition.
