Literature comes alive as Master Storyteller Jim Weiss entertains you and your family with some of the greatest myths and mysteries every told. Sit back (or on the edge of your seat!) as you’re introduced to Sherlock Holmes, Hercules, and other classic heroes.
This one-time ticketed performance benefits Journeys, a program serving grieving children and families in our community.
Journeys is the only year-round program of its kind in our nine-county service area which blends supportive counseling with artistic therapy for grieving children and teens (4 to 18 years old) and their families. Programs offered include support groups, workshops, one-on-one counseling, and day camps.
Any child or teenager – not just those served by hospice -- whose family member or friend has died can participate. There is no cost to access Journeys services. Hospice of the Piedmontrelies on gifts and grants—and special events, on occasion -- to sustain Journeys from year-to-year.
