Cuentame un Cuentito / Tell Me a Story

Stories on Stage is pleased to be producing Cuentame un Cuentito / Tell Me a Story once again this season!
We were thrilled with how many students were exposed to this piece which uses reading, dance, puppetry, and music to explore folk tales in Spanish and English.

We plan on bringing it to more elementary schools this academic year.
This program wouldn't be possible without the sponsorship of McDonald's Owner/Operators of Denver, and we are grateful for their assistance.

If you know of any school that might enjoy this bilingual show, call
Abbe Stutsman
at 303-579-1616.

Stories on Stage actors have successful and active careers.
Sometimes a surprise film or television commitment requires an actor to reschedule.
