This familiar German tale popularized by the Brothers Grimm is given a new treatment by students from Forest Heights Elementary in Harrison, Arkansas. That's right - we let someone else do the performing while we just directed. These bright youngsters not only supplied all the voices, they supplied all the dialogue, which they improvised on the spot. It all happened in a podcasting workshop we conducted at Forest Heights, one of three schools we appeared at in Harrison.

We come to you from Hot Springs, Arkansas, where we just performed for the many-eth time at the Garland County Library. We had an excellent turnout, including a wonderful family from Austin, TX who have been listening to our podcasts for some time. Great to meet up with them!

We also discuss our visit to Helen Keller's birthplace in Tuscumbia, AL and our attendance of the "Resonant Objects Workshop" at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta.

Happy Listening,
Dennis (nobody this time) and Kimberly (nobody too)
