Here’s a fun opportunity to participate in this year’s annual Hanukkah family festival at the Skirball (just six weeks away!):
Does a child in your life have a great Hanukkah tale to tell? The Skirball is now accepting submissions of Hanukkah stories written by young people, ages 5-12. Selected stories will be adapted and performed by interactive storytelling and puppet troupe Story Pirates at the Skirball’s Americana Hanukkah family festival on Sunday, December 2. The story can be any length and about anything Hanukkah-related… though we encourage stories that connect with the values of freedom, justice, and equality that this Jewish holiday celebrates. Each story just needs to be imaginative and in the child’s own words (no grown-up edits, please!). If your child’s story is selected for performance, we’ll contact you to make sure you’ll be there to hear your story brought to life on stage!
Deadline for submissions: Friday, November 12. E-mail your child’s name, age, hometown, and story to email@example.com.
