Tarradiddle returns to Tryon’s Super Saturday March 16

Published 6:14pm Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Many adults in the Super Saturday audience will remember the Brer Rabbit stories of their youth, which were derived from the trickster storytelling traditions in Africa, along with age-old children’s stories of the Creek and Cherokee Indians of Georgia, the Carolinas and Alabama.

A perennial favorite at Super Saturday, in recent years Tarradiddle has worked its unique magic with the likes of “Commedia Princess and the Pea,” “Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel,” “Commedia Cinderella” and “Commedia Pied Piper.” And now “Brother Rabbit Spinning Free.”

A ticket order form can be found at, along with information on all the performers coming March 16.
