Lolek's Storytellers was founded in 2010 by a group of homeschool students at St. Michael the Archangel church. We have since expanded to include the broader community in the north Atlanta area and perform in theaters in Canton and Marietta.
Our name was inspired by the childhood nickname of Karol Józef Wojtyła, who later became Pope John Paul II. During World War II he co-founded an underground theatre company named Rhapsodic Theatre, hidden from the communists in Poland. He also wrote several plays throughout his life.
Our mission at Lolek's is to create high quality theatrical performances for our audiences to enjoy and to provide an educational experience for our members to grow in.
We hold conservative Christian and traditional family values and strive to create a wholesome and supportive environment at Lolek's within a family-friendly atmosphere.
