Fall brings with it shortened daylight hours, cooler evenings, and Wyatt Heritage Properties Inc/Culture Summerside’s Evening of Storytelling:-the Island Way – on Thursday, September 28 at Eptek Art and Culture Centre. The art of storytelling is an important part of Prince Edward Island culture and people are always seeking a good story. Island tellers have their own style of telling in that they bring the practicality and laughter of life to the art.
Wyatt Heritage Properties Inc/Culture Summerside’s storytelling program is taking a slightly different format in 2017.This edition will consist of a solo evening of traditional oral storytelling featuring three Island tellers. The second evening, which has been recording of radio dramas, is being put on hold this fall to accommodate the workload of several special 150 anniversary projects. The radio dramas should be back in place for 2018.
The Evening of Storytelling begins at 7:30 pm at Eptek Art and Culture Centre located in the Wyatt Centre, 130 Heather Moyse Drive on Summerside’s beautiful waterfront. Tickets are ten dollars at the door.
