Folk Tale Magic Returns to People’s Light

Beginning June 23, catch Folk Tales in the Glen!

Beginning June 23 and running through July 31, you can join People’s Light for Folk Tales in the Glen, a socially distanced, interactive, outdoor offering for families with children ages 2-8. The performances will take place Wednesdays through Saturdays at 10 am.

“We cannot wait to see everyone,” says People’s Light Executive Artistic Director Abigail Adams. “We’re just overjoyed at the prospect of providing green, open spaces for people to safely reunite with friends, family, and neighbors, and enjoy live art again.”

In each interactive 45-minute performance, two storytellers will lead families through new interactive tales about caring, pride, and healing. The adventures are inspired by South Asian, Korean, and Lenape folk tales – and science. From June 23 through July 10, the story will be Pumpkins and the Elephant; then return July 15-31 for The Mirror: A Tale of Friendship.

The events will take place on People’s Light’s brand new outdoor stage in The Glen—the green space between the Leonard C. Haas and Steinbright stages. Reservations are available by purchasing a family circle, a designated area on the grass that seats up to 4 adults or children and 1 infant. Each reservation is $35 per group, regardless of the number of attendees. People’s Light provides cloth mats that are sanitized before each Folk Tales event, and accessible seating is available upon arrival for those who request it.

Coffee, juice boxes, and breakfast pastries will be available for purchase from an outdoor concession stand. Free accessible parking is available very close to the event location as well.

People’s Light is located at 39 Conestoga Road in Malvern.
