Readers’ Theater will be led by Carrie and Trisha, also known as storytellers from the International Institute Library Storytelling Mornings.

The activity forms part of the library services for library members. They will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Readers Theater session.

Non-members who want to participate have a symbolic associated cost of 3€ per child for each session. The tickets can be obtained at the library check-out desk the same week of the session up until 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity.

“The Princess and the Pea” by Rachel Isadora

Friday, May 23rd 2014 at 18h.


When a prince sets out to find a princess to marry, he soon discovers this is not a simple task. There is no shortage of so-called princesses, but how can he tell whether or not they are what they claim to be? Then one night, a great storm rages, there is a knock on the palace gate, and the prince’s life is never the same.

(Cuando un príncipe comienza a buscar a una princesa para casarse, pronto descubre que no es una tarea sencilla. No hay escasez de las llamadas princesas, pero ¿cómo puede decir si son o no son lo que dicen ser? Entonces, una noche, mientras una gran tormenta arrecia alguien llama a la puerta del palacio. A partir de entonces la vida del príncipe ya no será la misma.)
