What you'll do
Drag Queen Story Time brings storytelling to life. We read various books by accomplished authors, celebrating all things unique and different, while providing live vocals, crafts, and games! During this online experience, we’ll go through three short children's stories—from timeless classics like The Very Hungry Caterpillar, to LGBTQ inclusive stories like King and King. Kids will be encouraged to read along at home and engage with the story and pictures in real time. Don't forget to warm up your vocal chords, as Alyssa Van Delle will be taking the group through some favourite sing-a-longs for everyone to join in. Who will you see on Old MacDonald's farm today and what noise will they be making? This experience doesn’t forget Mum and Dad. Alyssa brings her wit to each session, incorporating jokes, pop culture references, and banter straight out of RuPaul's Drag Race. It’s just like being at your favourite drag show, except children will love it as well! So teach Gran how to Zoom, get the kids who are out of state on the line, and settle down for a family storytime session like you've never experienced before!
