Celebrating the Art of Storytelling

Through the power and artistry of stories, the 10th annual Lone Star Storytelling Festival, hosted by the Frisco Public Library Foundation and Frisco Association for the Arts, will be held October 18 and 19, at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, in Frisco.

The storytelling begins on the evening of October 18 with a concert featuring all five award winning storytellers. Daytime performances run throughout the day on October 19 and are suitable for families of all ages. The two evening concerts are geared for adults and children ages 10 and up.

In addition to bringing in professional storytellers, Frisco Public Library helps keep the art of storytelling alive by teaching area students from 8 to 18 the craft of storytelling in a series of extensive training sessions. Auditions are held each spring, and those chosen are coached to perform with the professional storytellers.

Favorite Stories concert: 8 p.m., October 18; daytime concerts throughout the day and Bedtime Stories concert at 6 p.m. and evening concerts at 8 p.m., October 19. Tickets for the concerts range from $5 to $10. Full event and family pack tickets are available. Proceeds benefit the Frisco Public Library.

Location: 6101 Frisco Square Blvd. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit LoneStarStories.org.
