Storyteller at Cape Ann Historical Museum


The Cape Ann Historical Museum presents Andrea Lovett as she shares the story of ‘The Cobbler’s Daughter’. Andrea has embraced storytelling as a way of life since 1992 and has performed for schools, libraries, festivals, museums, cable television and private functions throughout New England. Recently Lovett performed for the Three Apples Storytelling Festival and was featured at the Seaside Storytelling Festival. This Saturday Showcase event is a free family program. The fun begins at 11:00 a.m. in the Folly Cove Auditorium at the Museum. Join us for this tale of history, mystery and fun!

Introduced in September 2005, Saturday Showcase is designed to bring parents and children into the Museum to share enriching experiences. The focus is on the visual and performing arts, with strong ties to Cape Ann. Painters, musicians, dancers and storytellers are among the artists presenting this year’s programs. Audience members are invited to visit the Education room and spend time in the galleries following each performance. Funding to support Saturday Showcase has been provided by the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation and the 1675 Foundation.
