Stone Soup at MUSE 134

MUSE 134 is the new physical location for the Stone Soup Storytelling Institute thanks to the vision and generosity of Tom Davies and Karyn Page-Davies. Karyn has been the president and director of the Stone Soup Storytelling Institute since 2008.  Karyn’s passion for storytelling and the community has been steadfast and grown as the years have passed. As the leader for Stone Soup, Karyn felt that Stone Soup needed a home that would support the traditional and a diverse expression for telling our stories. She coerced her husband, Tom (a skilled carpenter), into purchasing the building at 134 South Main Street in Woodruff to be that home. Tom and his friends have renovated and renamed the building.  They tore out walls, replaced utilities, installed appliances and created space for a kitchen and studio.  The building and the business is called MUSE 134.

MUSE 134 describes the unlimited uses and purpose for the building seeing how the nine muses, goddesses from the ancient Greek world, represent history, comedy, love songs, music, oratory, heroic poems, dance, astronomy and tragedy.

Now, there is a home for Stone Soup with a welcome entryway, listening-performance-activity room and facilities. The Stone Soup board and MUSE 134 have an understanding that Stone Soup events are priority for MUSE 134 usage.

The Stone Soup Storytelling Institute has appointed a Stone Soup for MUSE Committee and Advisory Board to establish guidelines, to secure funding and to create programming. Stone Soup at MUSE 134 events will also be included in the Stone Soup newsletter and on Stone Soup social media.
