Join us for this fun, spooky storytime where we'll read about a skeleton who gets the hiccups, how loud a ghost can say 'boo!', and how to make a scary face. We'll then have a spectacularly spooky (but not too spooky) craft. Children are welcome to come dressed in costume.

Chopped off toes. Chopped off thumbs. Hands grabbing your ankle and pulling you underwater. Fairy tales can be scary, which also is part of what makes them fun.

Kansas City actor Robert Gibby Brand and wife Linda Ade Brand, the Lyric Opera’s director of education and community engagement, talk the night before Halloween about the original—and creepy—versions of the Frog Prince, Rumplestiltskin, Cinderella, and other favorite fairy tales. Kids and parents can meet the water sprite, Rusalka, who wants to become “Part of Your World” like the mermaid Ariel. (Spoiler: sad ending.)

Costumes are welcome. Treats are provided. Appropriate for all ages.
