VAIL — The Town of Vail Public Library welcomes Terra Taylor Knudson and her songs and stories about growing up on the Louisiana Bayou on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. Always fascinated as a child by the stories and characters from the Louisiana Bayou, Knudson — a playwright and performer — combines fact with original fiction to recreate the whimsical life of a child growing up there. Complete with anecdotes about the family, the neighbors, Gator Ball and the infamous Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, the Child of the Bayou program brings out the Cajun spice and Mardi Gras charm of life in the French Quarter and down by the Blue Bayou.

Knudson has performed on various stages across the country for nearly 20 years. A resident of Southern California for 12 years, she divides her time between performing around Los Angeles and Orange County, Cali., as well as serving as founder/artistic director and company playwright for her independent theater company, Olio Theatre Works, Inc. When not on stage, Knudson has spent a large portion of her career on the promotion of educational outreach programs focused on introducing the theatrical arts to youth in underserved communities around Southern California. In addition to developing and executing curriculum for these programs, Knudson has also played an integral role in exposing thousands of primary school students to Broadway-caliber musical theater, story-telling and Shakespeare. She has been invited to sit on the boards of several theatrical organizations throughout Southern California.

This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information please call 970-479-2187.
