Los Alamos Little Theatre will present award winning storyteller and author Joe Hayes at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 20 at the Performing Arts Center, 1670 Nectar Street, Los Alamos.   

Hayes has been traveling up and down the country, back and forth across the country, telling stories of the Southwest for more than 40 years. He was the pioneer of bilingual Spanish-English storytelling and has published more than 25 books, many in both English and Spanish.

Hayes has delighted and inspired children in thousands of schools and was the resident storyteller at the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe for 39 years. Many parents and teachers of today’s kids heard his tales when they themselves were children. Some may remember him from when he taught school in Los Alamos.

“He rolls his eyes, gestures and grimaces in awe at each turn of events as if he is hearing the tale for the first time himself. The listeners reel and laugh right along with him.” The Christian Science Monitor
