A dark folktale from the Appalachian region, by authors Howard Richardson and William Berney. The play takes place in a rural town in the Appalachian valley in 1930. It is the story of the beautiful Barbara Allen and the witch-boy, John, with whom she falls in love. The Witch culture and the Townsfolk culture are forever at odds, with a long history of deep seeded resentment and prejudice. The love between Barbara and John exasperates this, and through their love story thrives for a time, it ultimately ends in tragedy. Please be advised that this play contains images of implied personal violence and adult subject matter and is not suitable for audience members under the age of 14.

Why read to a dog? Because a dog is friendly and fuzzy and loves the attention of being read to! Gain confidence in your reading aloud skills and enjoy the company of one of Maggie our fabulous reading buddy, and her trainer, Katie. The program is in the Storytelling Room--when reading, only the reader, Maggie and Katie are in the room. Parents and siblings must remain outside, but can check on their reader's progress through the window on the door. Readers just gaining confidence don't need an audience. Turns are for fifteen minutes, but you can set the time to thirteen minutes so everyone in the family can go in at the end to meet Maggie and take photos.
Maggie is a certified Therapy Dog

What is Mindfulness?
For kids, it is to have them notice their thoughts, feelings and senses in the moment...to help relax, focus and have fun.
Why practice Mindfulness with children?
Benefits can include an increase in attention span, focus, and concentration, better relationships with parents and peers, good self esteem and better sleep habits, with less stress, anxiety, and depression. All of these lead to better emotion regulation, self monitoring and self control.
In class, the emphasis is on engaging children's senses through activities. Sheryl comes prepared with a bag of sensory props and uses different objects to engage children and help practice how to be more in the present moment. It's the awareness created during the activity that is beneficial, not the activity itself. When the senses are used the mind can't drift off or get lost in thought and the result is MINDFULNESS. Families attending this class can learn techniques to practice Mindfulness at home.
