Stone Soup and Other Stories

March 18, 2019

A charming, well-seasoned blend of Folk Tales from around the world, “Stone Soup and Other Stories” supports the literacy movement’s emphasis on the joy of reading, and provides a starting point for ongoing enjoyment of folk tales in the classroom.


Stone Soup and Other Stories is a Multi-Cultural Folk Tale collection of charming musical stories from Africa, India, Eastern Europe and the United States of America. Filled with music, fantasy and fun, each tale introduces the spirit and customs of these unique cultures. In so doing, it serves as a springboard for reading and subsequent reading-related activities.

The play also gently raises universal value clarification issues, your students will be delighted by the show. Then they’ll find themselves discussing why certain characters made certain choices, and how outcomes would have differed with different behavior.

Without a doubt, this familiar brew of favorites will delight very young audiences from age 4 to 94 and inspire students to learn, read and write! Dynamic, participatory and filled with zesty entertainment, “Stone Soup…” is on the gourmet “not to be missed” list for young viewers!
