Saturday in the Storefront

Start off with Storytime at 11:30AM. We’ll read the Very Hungry Caterpillar and make our own caterpillars to take home. We’ll be bilingual throughout (English and Cantonese). Thanks to Volunteer Staff Laura Jean and Celia for teaming up for this event.

Then, from 12PM-1PM, join educators from Opera Boston for an hour of special storytelling and craft workshop inspired by one of China’s most beloved stories, Madame White Snake. Madame White Snake, a powerful white snake demon, wants more than anything to become a human and experience love. After meditating for one thousand years, Madame White Snake is granted her wish. Come and learn about the many adventures that she and her maid, Lady Blue have as they begin their human lives in Hang Zhou, China. We’ll also make Chinese opera masks to take home.
