For children across the country, Halloween is an evening of community, mystery, magic, and sweets. With COVID-19 still in most neighborhoods, many families are choosing not to trick-or-treat and are hoping to celebrate the holiday in new and satisfying ways.
Sparkle Stories has an answer: a live online Halloween story svent called "The Forest of Magic & Mystery" on Halloween! This ten-part story experience will include some of Austin's best theatrical and storytelling talent and will be on Sparkle Stories's Facebook and Youtube live accounts on October 31st — Halloween — at 6PM and 8PM ET.
"After eight months of upheaval, confusion, and anxiety, " says Sparkle's chief storyteller David Sewell McCann, "it's time for something magical and full of delight to help us reconnect to each other as well as restore a sense of common celebration."
This online story event will lead children through a medieval world, in which the Queen's extraordinary ring is lost but must be found before the traditional Halloween ball. This particular tale — "The Fool's Tale" — is filled with playfulness, humor, and a colorful cast of characters.
The cast includes Austin luminaries like Jason Phelps of Hyde Park Theater, Capital Rep and Zach Scott; Matt Hislop of Rubber Rep and Rude Mechs; Michelle Alexander of Ground Floor and Zach Scott; John Cristopher of Austin Playhouse and Zach Scott; Kathleen Fletcher of Pollyanna and Zilker Hillside Theaters; and Bethany Harbaugh of Pollyann and Austin Playhouse.
