(August 28, 2013) Come to Frisco Public Library and experience the power of the story. The 10th Annual Lone Star Storytelling Festival is set for Oct. 18-19.
Organized by the Frisco Public Library Foundation, the festival offers adults and children a chance to listen to captivating stories told by some of the nation’s top storytellers, including Kevin Kling, Bil Lepp, Sue Roseberry and The Storycrafters. The award-winning performers put a contemporary spin on an old art form.
“The Festival is high-level, live entertainment. Think Garrison Keillor or Bill Cosby. It’s best described as one-person theater where tellers dip into their well of experiences and share tales from childhood and beyond,” said Mayra Diaz, producer of the Lone Star Storytelling Festival.
The fun begins Friday evening with "Favorite Stories," and performances continue throughout the day Saturday. Enjoy "Bedtime Stories" for the younger set on Saturday night, followed by side-splitting tales during "Laughing Night" later in the evening.
The festival is a fundraiser for the Frisco Public Library Foundation. Get tickets online or at the library beginning Sept. 3. The festival takes place at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd.
