August is the month for peaches, with the month being designated as Peach Month and August 24 as Pie Day. What better time to present the story of “Momotaro, the Peach Boy”, from Okayama Prefecture in Japan.
We come to you from Philadelphia, where we are making a repeat appearance at the Central Library. We performed the show one day after hiking 12 miles in Philadelphia's Wissahickon Park and two days after a return engagement at the James V. Brown Library in Williamsport.
Since our last podcast we have presented a flurry of performances in Arkansas and North Carolina before arriving in Pennsylvania. And in between shows we took the time to visit Elsewhere, a fabulous museum (of sorts) in Greensboro, NC. Formerly a thrift store, Elsewhere consists of a curious collection of old oddments that the visitor is welcome to touch and play with.
We also raced the turtles, fluttered with butterflies and roared at animated dinosaurs at Clyde Peeling's Reptileland in Pennsylvania.
Here's hoping that your summer is peachy keen.
