Winnipeg, Manitoba (November 29, 2010) - Saturday afternoon's storytelling event was a HUGE success! Approximately 200 children and parents crowded into the Aboriginal-Reading-in-the-Round area of the Millennium Library to hear a special reading of The Nutcracker and participate in a host of Nutcracker-themed arts and crafts. Special thanks to RWB Soloist Emily Grizzell who was kind enough to stay behind and sign autographs and to everyone in the children's section of the Millenium Library for their support. And, of course, RWB's Filbert the Bear gets a serious high-five for his wonderful hugs and sweet dance moves!
