H.O.H. Begin Japanese-Style Story telling

The Horizons on the Hudson Kamishibai (Japanese) Storytelling Troupe poses after their captivating performances at Head Start.

NEWBURGH - Recently, Horizons on the Hudson Kamishibai Storytelling Troupe headed to Head Start of Eastern Orange County for performances. Thirteen storytellers performed 10 stories from around the world in eight classrooms. The troupe was accompanied by HOH Library Teacher Michele Jumpp and parent-chaperone, Mrs. Johnston.

This is the third year that the HOH Storytelling Troupe has visited Head Start. The troupe has also been busy booking and giving performances in Pre-K through fifth grade HOH classrooms. One Pre-K classroom of John Cecchini and Berenda Johnson answered the challenge of storytellers, Mya Ortiz and Mia Exume, and created their own mini Kamishibai story about their visit to Chadwick Lake Park.

Additionally, there were performances during the Newburgh Illuminated celebrations on Saturday, June 21, 2014, at the Marketplace at Downing Park. Many families were entertained and inquiries were made about having the troupe perform and teach the art of Kamishibai at other facilities in Newburgh during the summer. Many of the enthusiastic and talented troupe members plan on seeking out other opportunities to perform their Kamishibai stories during their summer vacation.
