ST. GEORGE – The St. George Opera House Season of Stories presents “Jump Back Honey Jump Back: A Journey through African, Southern and African American Storytelling Traditions” with diverse, innovative and inspiring storyteller, Janice Brooks, at the Opera House, 212 North Main, in St. George, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m.
Brooks follows in the tradition of the African “griot” – storyteller – weaving history and culture to entertain and enlighten about the intricacies and wonders of life. In this interactive performance, the multi-talented Brooks uses movement, sings, and plays percussion instruments.
The blues singer, praise poet, and African griot, all call out to the people in myth and metaphor. African and African-American stories have been told to send messages, voice protest, ease troubled hearts, and instill virtue.
Season of Stories is a series of presentations at the St. George Opera House, presented in conjunction with the Dixie Tellers – a chapter of the Utah Storytelling Guild.
Ticket price is $5 for adults and $4 for seniors, children, and military. Seating is limited. Tickets can be obtained at the St. George Art Museum located at 47 E. 200 N., St. George. Seats not claimed by 6:55 p.m. will be released to waiting patrons.
