Storytellers groomed young

Programs marry kids' imagination with actors' know-how

Agents, actors and third graders joined forces to spread the word about the Young Storytellers Program, in which volunteers work with kids to develop the moppets’ original stories, which are then performed by actors for family and friends. Brown bag lunches were served to guests in the school cafeteria complete with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and juice boxes. Those attending the event held at Cheremoya Elementary School in Hollywood were Damien Saccani, Andrew Lazar (both of Mad Chance Prods.), Mikkel Bondesen (founder of the Young Storytellers Program), Matt Weaver (Immortal Entertainment) and Jeff Graup (Bondesen-Graup Management).
