|"This is Not a Box" is subject of next museum storytelling program on June 16 at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center|
With the Johnson County Museum reopening at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center in the former King Louie Building, a new session of entertaining and educational stories involving nature, history, culture, and art is being presented by local Storyteller Jo Ho beginning in mid-June.
Titled simply Jo Ho Storyteller, this series of stand-alone programs is for ages three to five. These programs take place beginning at 10 a.m. on one day each month at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. The cost for each one-hour program is $6 per person, including adults, and museum members are $3. Each ticket includes admission to the museum and the new and expanded KidScape experience. To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under preschool and then under fine & performing arts. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “storytelling.”
The first program in the series is called "This is Not a Box!" on Friday, June 16. These “building with boxes” stories are well insulated with hilarious characters, concrete plots, and framed with lots of role-playing for carpenters of all ages.
