The Story of My Bees at Jones Library, Amherst on Saturday, April 18

Get ready for Bee Week in Amherst (4/25 – 5/1) by hearing Piti TheatreStory of my bees photo Company’s Jonathan Mirin tell “The Story of My Bees” at Jones Library in Amherst on Saturday, April 18 at 11 am. Based on Piti’s play with music “To Bee or Not to Bee”, this 25 minute storytelling event uses puppetry, clowning, dance, music and audience participation to tell Farmer James’ comic, tragic and ultimately hopeful story. Piti created “To Bee” and “The Story of My Bees” to raise awareness about the honeybee’s plight and give children and adults tools for helping pollinators thrive in their communities. Children will receive bee-friendly flower seeds to take home and plant at the end of the show. More about Bee Weeks in Amherst, Northampton (5/30 – 6/7) and Greenfield (5/30 – 6/7) at
