Vanar Sena Pathshala will present “Animal Tales from India” from 2 to 3 p.m. Sunday at International House, Davis, 10 College Park.
Vanar Sena Pathshala will present performances by children based on East Indian culture. VSP students will perform two plays they have adapted — and scripted — from ancient Indian tales: the Panchatantra. The stories teach simple life lessons to children using humor and vivid dialogues that speak directly to children of all ages.
VSP provides children of Indian descent with the tools for a better understanding of their rich and diverse heritage. The program was started in February 2005 by a few mothers who decided to get together weekly and teach their children various cultural, historical and geographical details related to their Indian heritage. The students range in age from 5 to 17 years old.
The I-House Storytelling Program is designed for elementary schoolchildren ages 4-9, but is enjoyed by children of all ages. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Admission is free for I-House members. Nonmembers are asked to pay $5 per family or $2 per person. For more information, visit www.internationalhousedavis.org/childrens-international-storytelling-program.
