The Frog Prince & Other Favorite Stories
September 13-October 4
Pay What You Can
According to McCormack, “This show brings together some of my very favorite stories that are remarkably stretchy to fit all viewers. Each tale has a multitude of layers meant to cater to whimsy-seekers, imagination-dwellers, and analogy-diggers. I hope that they are enjoyed and discussed long after the program ends.”

About the Artists
Denise McCormack is a storyteller.
Stories, even and especially the simple folk and fable, shine a light on little things that have far reaching implications, including the power to draw us together in community.
Among McCormack’s favorites are tales of aged heroes and strong, wise women; creation tales, myths, and epics that speak of values and perseverance; and both prose and poetry that bring to the life the magic of our glorious world.
McCormack has been a featured teller and workshop presenter at local and regional fringes and festivals, including the National Storytellers Network conferences and Philadelphia stages, and educator conferences. She has also developed and facilitated local story slams and swaps.
Moreover, trying to keep up with her creative initiatives over the course of the pandemic has resulted in digital media and audio/video productions which expand and connect community and story.
