You’re invited to Once Upon A Time: a vaudeville-inspired, playfully presented, plucky performance of picture books, performed by Michael Boudewyns; actor, storyteller, fan of Butser Keaton and Harold Lloyd, but most of all, an avid reader and life-long lover of kids books. For 15 years, Michael’s solo storytelling has been a hit. The Philadelphia Inquirer calls him “a great storyteller,” and praises his signature style: “…simplicity as a form of genius.”
As a member of Really Inventive Stuff, he co-creates fully staged presentations of classic stories and performs them with theatres, schools, libraries and orchestras around the country. Michael has been a frequent guest artist with the Philadelphia Orchestra’s popular Family Concerts, presenting vaudeville-inspired performances of works such as Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, Poulenc’s The Story of Babar, George Kleinsinger’s Tubby the Tuba and Robert Kapilow’s Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham. We’re thrilled to welcome Michael to the Colonial for the first time!
