Saturday Family Story Sessions

Four Saturdays this fall, families enjoy diverse and dynamic programs from some of the best storytellers in our area. At Strathmore’s Saturday Family Story Sessions, stories encourage active imagination and come alive through improv, puppetry, songs, and more. Kids and parents alike will be enamored by the epic tales our storytellers spin. Snag a spot in the cozy Mansion Music Room and get up close to the performers—you might even find yourself participating in the story!

Ideal for ages 4–8. See our Strathmore Kids Tips for this program.

10:15am performances are sensory-friendly to create an experience that is welcoming to children with autism or sensory sensitivities.

This hilarious pantomime sketch incorporates music, ballet, clowning, and audience participation to tell the story of a traveling actor and his magical trunk of tricks and toys. Kids discover the art of acting with expressions rather than words, opening the door to new possibilities for their imaginations. Coming to the sensory-friendly session? Download the performance guide.


About Ideal Ages We list ideal ages for many Strathmore Kids events to help families navigate our offerings, but recognize that all children are unique and respond to experiences differently. We invite you to explore the information provided to determine if the event is a good fit for your family. We welcome movement and noise at these events with no shushing.

Everyone Needs a Ticket! All attendees, including accompanying adults, must have a ticket for this event to help us manage attendance and be sure we don't go over our maximum allowed capacity. Tickets for this program are not mailed; there will be a Will Call list at the door.

Free for 2 & Under Children 2 years old and under will be admitted to this program for free. If you plan to bring a child 2 years old or younger, please call our ticket office to reserve a special free ticket at 301.581.5100.
