Sandglass Theater's New Storytellers Series "Passages" Continues With Roger Longtoe Sheehan 11/15

Sunday, November 15 4 pm $8, Roger Longtoe Sheehan is chief of the ELNU Abenaki Tribe. He's an accomplished Wabanaki singer, storyteller, native historian, speaker of Wabanaki culture and maker of many types of fine native arts and skills.

Settle in with your family and friends in the cozy atmosphere of Sandglass' 60-seat barn theater as Sheehan evokes the lore and traditions of his local native culture through Wabanki songs and stories. "Roger has a wonderful, innate talent for storytelling," Said Ines Zeller Bass, co-artistic director of Sandglass Theater, "These stories, interwoven with nature, explore existential questions and contain beautiful lessons about life."

With this series, we are interested in the aspects of stories that bring communities together and that develop cultural identity. Traditionally, communities come together around their stories. When we hear stories from other cultures, we come together around the great community of mankind. These storytellers are entertaining for all ages, but they are also informative and provocative in the cultural experiences they evoke

Sandglass Theater has limited seating, so reservations are strongly recommended.

The "Passages" storyteller series will continue the following Sunday, Nov. 22, at 4 p.m., when the Sandglass stage will come alive with a collection of songs and stories performed by master humorists and mystifiers, Tim and Leanne Ponder.

Sandglass will conclude the series on Dec. 6 at 4 p.m., with local favorite Larry Bramble's retelling of Truman Capote's "A Christmas Memory."
