Toronto Waldorf School launches a weekly story time at the Puppet Festival on May 28th

THORNHILL, ON, May 3, 2016 /CNW/ - Toronto Waldorf School (TWS) is pleased to announce the launch of a free weekly story time that is open to parents with young children in partnership with the Village Market.

The story time will be launched at the Puppet Festival on Saturday, May 28th featuring short rotating puppet shows around our campus including Masha and the Bear, The Little House and Sunday Bread. The grand finale of the festival is the performance of a marionette show: Briar Rose. Both the festival and the story time are free and open to the public.

"We are pleased to offer this fun and free family friendly event to our local community. We hope that it will become part of the cultural landscape of Richmond Hill and Vaughan in much the same way as the Village Market already is, and help support local farmers and vendors at the same time." said Katie Ketchum, TWS Director of Admissions.

Upcoming stories include Grandmother and the Fairy Candle and The Sea Shell. Check our website for a full list of performances.
