Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle bring their "crankies" to St. John's Episcopal Church, on the corner of Quarrier Street and Leon Sullivan Way, on Friday. They'll weave collected stories, old ballads and fiddle and banjo tunes with shadow puppetry and original scrolling illustrations -- called crankies -- stitched in fabric and cut out of paper.
The FOOTMAD-sponsored show runs 8 to 9 p.m. with a dance from 9:30 to 11 p.m. The suggested donation is $10, but no one will be turned away. Enter on Quarrier Street.
