March 12-15 at the Denton Civic Center, the Texas Storytelling Festival honors the ancient craft of storytelling with performances and workshops for children and adults. The event features about 35 “tellers” weaving tales about everything from ghosts to urban life to American Indians. “It’s very nurturing to have the opportunity to listen and imagine without a lot of visual stimulation, to just embrace the story and make the pictures in your own mind,” says Elizabeth Ellis, a featured storyteller and artistic director for the event. “It’s something humankind has done for hundreds and hundreds of years.” Call 940/380-9320.
