Matthew Witten, Storyteller: Nighttime Dreams, Fairies, & Wild Sleepovers
Who’s Matthew Witten? What does he do? He makes awfully weird faces and sings earthly tunes. He gets kids a-movin’ and feelin’ the groove. He’ll weave a new story in front of your eyes, and get you to dance, no matter your size! While squeezing his box and strumming his strings, your fists become hooves and your arms become wings. Little ones stare and adults often laugh, so come and see Matthew for an hour or half.
