Interactive storytelling vividly brings to life the tale of a young boy who bravely sets out to rescue the Sun from its imprisonment by a powerful dragon. With the help of a magic Phoenix, Bawshou must complete three great challenges. In “Bawshou and the Water Dragon,” storytellers Bells & Motley, the husband and wife team of Sondra Bromka and John Bromka, present a traditional Chinese tale of wonder and adventure through costume, dance and music performed on authentic Chinese instruments.
The library will be hosting two performances of “Bawshou and the Water Dragon” on Monday, February 18, at 11 a.m. OR 2 p.m., along with special participation workshops for children before each show. The event is part of the Ann Seegal Memorial Storytelling series that brings top-level storytelling performances to Bethlehem Public Library. Seating is limited and available on a first-come basis.
