LIVINGSTON, NJ - For the 11th year in a row, husband and wife Professional Storytellers Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, a.k.a Beauty and the Beast Storytellers, completed the Artists in Residence program at Harrison School. The couple comes each year to spin yarns and encourage even the most reluctant sharers to tell tales of their own.

After performing for all students and staff on Monday, March 24, the Hamiltons worked with third graders throughout the week, assisted by staff members Mrs. Fischer, Miss Sorrentino, Mrs. Sachs, Mrs. Matienzo, Mrs. DeMarsico, Miss Kwai and Mrs. Cullen. 

Students then presented to their parents at a Storytelling Festival on Friday, March 28.
