Don’t catch a chill, chill out at the Aquarium of Niagara throughout February. It’s time for the annual storytellers’ visits, sponsored by Target. Beginning Feb. 2, each storyteller will share a tale or two in their own special way. Children must be accompanied by at least one adult.
Storytelling will begin with Annemarie Jason, an annual Aquarium visitor, who literally pulls her tales out of her “story hat.” Her stories involve music, action, puppets and rhymes. She and the other tellers of tales will appear at 11:30 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. each Saturday.
Annemarie is also the storyteller Saturday (Feb. 9). This day usually featured Mr. Beau the Clown. We were saddened to hear of his passing late last year.
On the third Saturday, Feb.16th, Denise Chapman-Acosta, will share stories directed toward adults and children, various ethnic groups and are accompanied by drumming and song.
The final story date is Feb. 23th when The Wondermakers, a traveling troupe, perform story theater, fables and folktales.
All the storytellers will be in the second level Community Room. Aquarium members are free and regular admission rates will be in effect for non-members; adults, $10; $6 for children and free for 2 and under. No reservations are needed. For more information, call 285-3575, Ext. 206.
