Creative Cauldron Hosts Event-Filled Weekend

Creative Cauldron at 410 South Maple Street has a full slate of events planned for this weekend, starting with its free open house that kicks off this Saturday, April 18,  from 10 a.m. – noon with a Learning Theater Workshop Observation, in which attendees can see young actors who train with the Falls Church-based arts organization in action. The open house will runs through 4 p.m. on Saturday, with events and activities like Puppet Making Demonstration with Margie Jervis and a concert in which Juan Cayrampoma will perform on a myriad of traditional Andean instruments.

That night Shenandoah Run, a nine-member folk group from the Washington, D.C. area, will perform their blend of vintage and contemporary folk music featuring songs and sounds of American country and bluegrass music with an occasional infusion of songs from other lands. They will be joined by The Moondiggers, a folk harmony group that plays original songs and classic hits, with some lighthearted fun in the mix.

Hui O Ka Pua ‘Ilima, a Polynesian dance troop, will close out Creative Cauldron’s weekend of events on Sunday, April 19, at 2 p.m. Hui O Ka Pua ‘Ilima performs traditional and contemporary songs and dances of Hawai’i and the Polynesian islands of New Zealand and Tahiti. The IONA performance, which was originally scheduled for this Friday, April 17, was cancelled. For more information, visit
