BRATTLEBORO -- Adults wondering how the elephant got his trunk or the camel got his hump should come to Rudyard Kipling’s Naulakha on Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m., when The Landmark Trust USA hosts Jackson Gillman in a benefit performance of Kipling’s "Just So Stories."

Over the past 13 years, more than 6,000 area grade-schoolers and teachers have watched Gillman bring to life these timeless tales in the very setting they were first told by Kipling to his daughter, Josephine. The Trust will again offer this program free to school groups during the week of April 2 and felt that adults, too, should have a chance.

The evening performance will be limited to 25, and the admission charge of $35 will include a tour of Naulakha. Desserts and coffee will be served. Proceeds benefit the school program.
