Bookworms Teaser Web.png

A library is a space of wonder and imagination, where you can find every story that ever has been and ever will be. But what goes on Beyond The Bookshelves?


Bookworms is an original, highly visual and multi-sensory performance combining storytelling, movement, and puppetry. As audiences are welcomed by The Storyteller into a typical library story time, something strange starts to happen. The stories are not how The Storyteller remembers them! The mischievous bookworms take audiences to Beyond The Bookshelves where they help restore the stories.


Best for children ages 3-6 and their caregivers.


Estimated Runtime: 40 minutes


Locations and Dates TBA

(October-November 2024)

Bookworms will be touring Chicagoland libraries in Fall 2024.
