Program Description

Event Details

Join Walter Ritter for storytelling in the Japanese Kamishibai style featuring the stories of Roald Dahl including The Enormous Crocodile and The Magic Finger.

In this Japanese tradition, a professional storyteller reveals a series of illustrations contained in a storybox as the narrative unfolds.  Before TV & comic books existed in Japan, there was Kamishibai (kami = paper; shibai = theatre).  With a wooden box, illustrations and a great narrator to tell the story, all ages will be enthralled with the stories and pictures!

Participants agree to follow all relevant City of San Diego COVID protocols.
