April Armstrong is a featured storyteller in the Hudson Valley, a place of lively ghosts and ghoulies at Halloween time. Listen to her tell spooky, but not too spooky, stories in Glenview’s Great Hall. Hear about a spooky house, about a witch and a special kind of horse, and about a strange and wonderful cookie that makes a bad situation better.
April garnered a 2015 BRIO Award for storytelling from the Bronx Council for the Arts and her debut CD, The Cat Came Back: Stories and Songs with a Jazzy Twist won a 2015 Parent’s Choice Award – Silver.

Planetarium: Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds — a Live Radio Frightfest 3:30 pm
Mars invades. This year, they’re back for Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds, real-time radio presented by Spring Training Productions. One show only on Sunday, October 30 at 3:30 pm. The story starts when a seemingly harmless meteor strike turns out to be the vanguard of a mega-Martian attack. Thrill to the story and the audio visual trick-or-treats projected on the Planetarium dome. War of the Worlds, first published by novelist H.G. Wells, was turned into a live radio play by Orson Welles in 1938. Extraterrestrial invasion makes a good story and like all good stories, this one stays real and lives on.
