Book Reading at Tara's Story at Temple Synphoria

Hello! Preston & Emily Klik +Cynthia Von Orthal here.

On Saturday Dec 27th, we'll produce our annual holy-day tradition: TARA'S STORY FOR KIDS (a beautiful Creation Myth starring 15 large puppets) @ our home; 2 shows, @ 1pm & 4pm.

(If you prefer the 4PM show: )

Bring your kids - or "borrow" kids - to experience this joyful life-size magical puppet show! Von Orthal Puppets' TARA'S STORY has been performed @ many Chicagoland churches & temples & libraries. It is magical, with a joyful/colorful & spiritual vibe, with lots of fun lighting. Our Onederland Room will be filled with puppets, you (adults), & the children you love!

The whole event is about 75 minutes long:
(1) Author Anna Todaro performs her fun children's book "EVERYBODY HOOPS BUT ME"
(2) "TARA'S STORY FOR KIDS" puppet show
(3) followed by our magical blacklight "WHITE GLOVE DANCE FOR KIDS!"
