Chasing Tales

Video may have killed the radio star, but it didn't do a lot for the storyteller, either. Long before man stared into the blue-glowing abyss of television, he created cave drawings at Lascaux, shared the theater of Homer fireside and took in tales by traveling bards -- and it didn't end there. Share the rich, ever-evolving history of storytelling and experience the magic of more than 50 of its master craftspeople at work at the award-winning, 33rd annual St. Louis Storytelling Festival, a six-day celebration spanning from April 30 to May 5. The grand finale kicks off on May 5 at 7:30 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center (One University Boulevard; 314-516-4949) and features concluding performances by all of the featured storytellers. Tickets are $7 to $10.
