(NEWTOWN, PA) – The ZLOCK Performing Arts Center (Zlock PAC) announces a brand new monthly storytelling series starting on Friday, February 24, at 7:30 pm and will run through April 28. The legendary DC Benny will host this storytelling series with co-host comedian Marc Kaye.

Co-host Mark Kaye, who helped develop the series, states: Resourcefulness comes to mind in February; here it is, the shortest month of the year but yet it’s jam-packed with rituals and ceremonies – from Valentine’s Day to Black History Month, and somehow, it makes do with the days it’s given. Hear stories of how resourcefulness, despite actual resources, and persistence are more than “making do” and prepare to be inspired.
