I Am A Story

Join The Public Theatre and the Auburn Public Library for a morning of interactive and theatrical storytelling.

I Am A Story is an interactive and theatrical program designed to introduce children and their families to the magical and meaningful world of live theatre through contemporary and classic children’s literature.

Utilizing theatrical techniques to bring stories to life, I Am A Story provides young audiences with an entertaining and engaging environment that encourages participants to use their imaginations to creatively think, explore, and connect with the stories.

While the youngest kids will enjoy the lively interactive storytelling techniques, older children will learn how much fun they can have bringing new life to the stories they read on their own, to family and with friends.

I Am A Story is held at the Auburn Public Library on the Second Saturday of every month from 10:00-10:45 AM and is recommended for children ages 4-8 (Pre-K to Grade 3).

WHERE: Auburn Public Library, 49 Spring St, Auburn, ME 04210 – Large Community Room

WHEN: 10:00-10:45 AM – Second Saturday of the Month – check schedule for exceptions

Recommended Ages: 4-8 (Pre-K to Grade 3)
