Strings & Stories
… A lively and entertaining mix of music, theater and storytelling
Linda Rosenthal, violinist
Bill Blush, actor and storyteller
Strings & Stories is a two-person show that combines music and theater in a delightful kaleidoscope of favorite children’s stories, classical music, whimsical mime, and improvisation. It is fast-paced, interactive, educational and fun for audiences of every age.
Linda created and premiered Strings & Stories for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. in 1995. Since its debut performance, she and Los Angeles actor Bill Blush have performed Strings & Stories for thousands of children in schools, libraries and theaters throughout the United States under the auspices of the Piatigorsky Foundation.
School shows, designed for grades K-5, feature The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Story of Ferdinand and other favorite classic tales. Family programs include classic tales plus familiar children’s poems and limericks set to music. A program designed especially for adult audiences features traditional classics for the violin as well as dramatic monologues and comedic sketches. (See programs for more information.)
