McCormack to share ‘Love Stories’ on Mother’s Day
Bordentown City resident and storyteller Denise McCormack will bring her performance art home Mother’s Day weekend when she will recreate her one-woman show Love Stories at the Friends Meeting House, 302 Farnsworth Ave. Performances are Friday, May 11 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 13 at 3 p.m.
Love Stories was recently showcased during Philly Theatre Week at The Center for Art in Wood.
“Denise McCormack approaches each story in detail, breathing life into them in such a way that captivates the audience,” said Katie Sorenson, development and events manager at The Center for Art in Wood. “It is a wonderfully unique experience, and we highly recommend attending one of Denise McCormack’s performances.”
The stories highlight the dynamic nature of relationships and reflect the emotional turmoil that is interwoven in them, especially those of motherhood. The program is intended for adult audiences.
McCormack, who has been telling professionally for more than a decade, presents programs throughout the tri-state area and is deeply committed to sharing the benefits of storytelling in a broad spectrum of applications—from education and community to health and well-being.
McCormack is the New Jersey state liaison for the National Storytelling Network, co-chair of the New Jersey Storytelling Festival, president of the Patchwork Storytelling Guild in Philadelphia and an active member of various other local and national organizations wherein storytelling plays an integral role.
