A Magical Journey into a Latinx World
Entertain children from four to ten years old during a virtual birthday party, virtual camp, or playtime activity with a 30-minute storytelling program where Marian shares Puerto Rican folktale stories of Juan Bobo, personal anecdotes, short bilingual songs, and life-lessons from the oral tradition in an engaging program that lifts the spirit with humor. Children are encouraged to use their imagination during the performance as Marian brings each character to life by using different voices and animal sounds. Directed by Anne Mesritz, Marian has presented this storytelling program at The Kennedy Center, The National Theatre, The Capital Children’s Museum, The Museum of American History, schools and libraries in the DMV area, West Virginia, and other states. Marian will coordinate with you and your invited viewers via email to set up a performance. The program will take place over Zoom or Google Meet.
