The wicked queen is the most beautiful lady in the land, and she has the word of a magic mirror to prove it. Obsessed with her beauty, the queen’s vanity grows year after year until one day the mirror names someone else the fairest in the land. Someone “whose heart is pure as new white snow.” Snow White! The queen’s own step daughter! The mirror’s truth – that a beautiful heart within far outshines beauty worn only without – is more than the hateful queen can bear, and she vows to destroy the innocent princess. But the light of a pure heat is not easily extinguished. By the power of her inner beauty and with the help of a special gift from her real mother, Snow White is able to escape the schemes of the wicked queen and begin her path to happy ever after. Adapted by Keith Smith from the Brothers Grimm.

One of Aesop’s most famous fables is about a boastful bunny who learns a valuable lesson: “Slow and steady wins the race.” Of course, Aesop lived in ancient Greece, but there are turtle and tortoise stories (each with its own lesson) from many different cultures and traditions. From the Philippines comes the story of The Turtle and the Monkey. There’s also an African folktale about The Singing Tortoise, while Japanese culture gives us The Singing Turtle. From Bolivia there’s even The Song of the Armadillo. (Okay, not a tortoise, but she’s got a shell – and a very sweet story to tell.) Through music and dance and witty turtle wordplay, this lively roundup of culturally diverse tortoise tales celebrates one thing that every culture holds in common: the fun of storytelling! Adapted by Keith Smith from traditional folktales.


The Emperor's New Clothes (Recommended for K-5th)

Grand Prairie Center
Stuttgart, Arkansas

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Stuttgart

The emperor loves clothes. His favorite thing to do is to dress up in lavish new outfits of the latest and boldest styles and admire himself for hours on end in his great imperial mirror. The emperor is a silly man. Then one day a weaver arrives who claims to weave a very special cloth – a fabric so fine, so delicate, says he, that garments crafted from it are totally invisible to anyone but the most clever and sophisticated citizens. The emperor is delighted. He simply must have such an outfit and he simply must wear it in a grand procession through the capital city. What could go wrong? Right? When the day of the procession arrives, the whole city is, of course, dazzled by their emperor’s new clothes. That is, until one wise little boy courageously pipes up: “Hey! The emperor has no clothes!” Then the real fun begins. Adapted by Keith Smith from the story by Hans Christian Andersen.
