Storytelling spring continues Friday

Word of mouth will always live. The art of story time is a serious craft presented locally by the Victoria Storyteller’s Guild with Spring into Stories: Story Fest 2011.

It’s a series of concerts highlighting the joy of adult storytelling, as told by guild members. Building on the success of World Storytelling Day March 25, the storytellers present three more events, beginning with Friday’s (April 15) Stories from Around the World and Close to Home.

Upcoming dates include a Mother’s Day event May 6 featuring stories celebrating mothers – human or otherwise – and Anything Goes: Expect the unexpected, on June 17.

All are Friday shows and begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Intrepid Theatre Club, 1609 Blanshard St. at Fisgard Street.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for mature children and guild members.
