'Best Storyteller in the World' to Visit Village Theater This Weekend

Canton Observer (Canton, MI) , March 17, 2005


One of the country's most celebrated storytellers will come to Canton this weekend for the seventh annual Storyteller's Festival.

"This is our first year at the theater. We're very excited about that, which is why we're bringing in the best storyteller in the world, bar none," said festival coordinator Corrine Stavish, referring to this year's main attraction, Donald Davis, who will perform Saturday afternoon at 1:30 for the family performance. "He has been featured at the National Storytelling Festival too many times to count. He's just amazing."

Stories are, and always have been, at the heart of being human, Stavish said.

"Stories are the first things we hear as children and the last things we hear as adults. They drive our lives, whether it's a news story, a history, a personal story, or a fable, we're compelled by the tale," she said. "Storytelling goes to everyone's heart. You're never too old for a good story."
