|Johnson County Museum to present series of storytelling programs beginning Sept. 14|
Local Storyteller Jo Ho dramatically engages with entertaining and educational stories involving nature, history, culture, and art during a series of storytelling programs set to begin in mid-September. Because the Johnson County Museum is closed from Sept. 4 until May 2017 in preparation for the opening of the new Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center in the former King Louie Building, these programs will take place at the Mill Creek Activity Center, 6518 Vista Drive, Shawnee.
Titled simply Jo Ho, Storyteller, this series of four stand-alone programs is for ages three to five. All programs will take place beginning at 10 a.m. on the third Wednesday of the month. The cost for each one-hour program is $2 per person, including adults, and museum members are free.
The first program in the series is called "Aesop's Fables" and will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 14. From a clever crow to a brave little mouse, these short tales of long ago still make a big impact today! Humorously presented with a delightful dramatic flair, this back-to-school program offers gentle lessons in goodness, kindness, sharing, and friendship.
Individual walk-in participations are welcome if space is available, but groups of ten or more must preregister. Individuals and groups can preregister by calling (913) 715-2575.
Other entries in this series will include: "Unscary Scarecrows" on Oct. 19, "The First Thanksgiving Alphabet" on Nov. 16, and "Joy Around the World" on Dec. 21.
The Johnson County Museum is a department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
