(Adult program) In a family of 'Jacobs' the intellectual inheritors of the tribe and tradition, what happens when you birth an 'Esau,' a hairy lover of meat and hunting? This very funny and poignant tale for parents, educators, and teens struggling to make meaning of their lives, is about the barbed wire of parenting, and how our children, if we listen and learn, eventually teach us who they are and how to nurture them. It includes 8 Broadway parodies, and appeals to the musical lover in all of us. This is part of Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) 11th Annual Storytelling Festival - Art of the Story, which runs April 11 - 18. Admission is free and the festival performances are designed for the enjoyment of adults. This program also welcomes children ages 6 and up (but this is not one). The week-long storytelling extravaganza features 16 storytelling performances at the WCCLS member libraries, the Glenn & Viola Walters Cultural Arts Center, Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club and the new Sherwood Center for the Arts. NOTE: This festival performance is designed for the enjoyment of adults. Content in the programs requires attentive listening. Call 503-846-3222 no less than 3 business days prior to a festival event to schedule assistive listening devices or sign language interpreters.
