The White Rose
The White Rose: Hans and Sophie Scholl’s Thoughts of Freedom
Munich, Germany, 1943. Two siblings who came of age in the Third Reich walk a well-known path toward an uncertain future, carrying hidden words of resistance and hope. Buoyed by faith, stories, and songs, they are confident that, in the midst of the darkest of times, their thoughts can still be free.
This age-differentiated performance, followed by a time of discussion, is appropriate for fifth grade through adult audiences. The program is offered live in-person or online, with a hybrid pre-recorded alternative available as well.
King Arthur: Stories from Around the Table
Everyone’s heard the story about the boy who became king, the sword in the stone, and the most famous of Round Tables. Many came to that table, but not everyone was given a seat. Join Sarah Brady and Marion Leeper as they tell the stories of those others–the servants, the women, even the animals–in an hour-long program that will delight and engage.
This virtual program, offered in versions suitable for children or adults, invites audiences to experience these legends in a fresh way, as told by storytellers who come from both sides of the pond.
Contact Sarah Brady to find out more and to bring either of these programs to your venue.
