This year, all stories will be considered for Griffin's Tale's series of virtual shows. These will be posted on their YouTube channel throughout April and May 2021. Griffin's Tale is planning on posting 7 filmed and edited 30-minute shows, each including 4-5 children's stories. Stories may be adapted into songs, skits, raps, whatever our ensemble thinks best honors and expresses the story! All content will be filmed in a way that prioritizes the ensemble's safety in this time.
All stories will be submitted directly to Griffin Tales using this form. (Please also access the Story Identification Form located in the form, too.) The deadline has been extended and submissions are due by Monday, February 1st.
