Antiguan-born Canadian soprano Denise Williams' No Strings Theatre has laid out its major summer event with the announcement of "The Storyteller by Kathleen Mills" from July 6-21, 2023.
Described as a show that "explores themes of growing up, community, and how we can support those in our lives who need us...appropriate for all ages"...."the story develops"in a small village at the base of a mountain spring comes every year on the same day, when one storyteller braves the climb and brings a story to the Goddess at the top. It is the coldest winter yet and it looks like spring may not come this year, when two strangers arrive and the world is changed forever".
