National award winner and storyteller Kate Dudding creates entertaining, heartwarming, and memorable stories which give a voice to people from the past. Dudding has performed at many large venues in New York City, Saratoga Springs,NY and Stockbridge, Mass. Her "People Who Made a Difference- Vol. 1" CD received the 2010 Storytelling World Honor Award. Kate also won the storytelling competition at the 2010 National Storytelling Conference in Los Angeles, CA. On Tuesday, May 3rd, from 6:30 - 7:30 pm, Ms. Dudding will give her award winning performance at the Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) at 345 Broad Street Waverly, NY.
"People Who Made Difference" is a collection of stories of people who made a difference in the world, or their part of the world. While the audience may think they know the French chef whose work actually transformed the US or the Broadway composer who had a hard time writing songs initially, each of these tales and many more told by this master storyteller are told in a way that will inspire you in a family friendly format. SRAC's Deb Twigg commented."Storytelling is an art form that we wanted to add to our list of programming at SRAC because it is something that can be enjoyed by all ages. Kate is a big name in this field, and if you have never experienced a real storyteller working their craft, now is your chance to come and learn why it is so popular."
This event is sponsored by the Tioga County Seniors Foundation and seniors (over 60) are invited to attend this event for free. General admission is $6 per adult, with $4 per SRAC member and student. Free admission to the SRAC Exhibit Hall is included in the admission price for the night.
