Join Safiya Johnson of the Good Times Traveling Theatre for an original play of international folktales. The play, In the Shadow of the Baobab Tree: Folktales from Around the World, takes place at an African Bazaar with a traveling griot and her magical wild animals and critters sharing folktales that offer edutainment for all ages. She believes that folktales are the “original social media” to communicate values for guiding people’s lives. Johnson is a member or Arts Northwest and the Southern Order of Storytellers.
