Storyteller Stories 1 & 2: The Enchanted Rock; Clara

A combined version of 1. The Enchanted Rock and 2. Clara (Woody Guthrie's Sister), starring Finley Stewart, is available.
1. The Enchanted Rock
The Enchanted Rock is a huge, pink granite exfoliation dome found in Llano, Texas. One of the largest batholiths in the United States, it is a National Natural Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places. In this program the Enchanted Rock is the setting for the fateful story of Ross and Anna. Told in a manner one would expect sitting around a campfire at night, Finley Stewart brings to life this suspenseful legend that will captivate viewers from beginning to end.
2. Clara (Woody Guthrie's Sister)
People know Woody Guthrie as the singer and songwriter of such classic folk songs as This Land is Your Land. One story that most don't know about this famous folk musician is the tragic loss of his older sister, Clara, who died in a fire, an experience that certainly affected Woody the rest of his life. In this program, Finley Stewart, playing the role of a young Woody Guthrie, sensitively tells the true story leading up to the tragedy. The moving performance captures the courage of Clara and helps us better understand who the great folksinger-songwriter was and where he came from. 98/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
