Storytelling 101 Presented At Marine Museum

OSWEGO, NY – Children and their families and invited to take part in “Storytelling 101” on May 1 from 1 – 2:30 p.m.

Students from SUNY Oswego will perform creative and imaginative presentations of various children’s stories at the H. Lee White Marine Museum.

The storytellers will use costumes and props to add to the experience.

Bring your favorite stuffed animal, puppet, storybook or story character and a pillow to sit on and get ready for the unrestrained antics of these talented performers!

SUNY Oswego Professor Jonel Langenfeld-Rial, has coordinated the students with the museum program over the last few years.

“It’s so rewarding for the students to actually perform before the children and their parents and grandparents,” she said. “Many of the students are majoring in other disciplines so this is a new experience for them.”

A craft project sponsored by Alliance Bank will follow the storytelling.

This program is appropriate for children ages 2-12.

“This is the third year that the Oswego college students have performed at the Marine Museum. We appreciate their enthusiasm and engaging the audience’s imagination in the program,” noted Mercedes Niess, executive director.

The museum is located at the end of Oswego’s West First Street Pier.

The program is free and open to the public.
