“Peter and the Wolf” by Rachel Hedman Rachel Hedman started competing at storytelling competitions in high school and has been telling wonderful tales ever since. Now, she’s the founder and executive director of Story Crossroads in Salt Lake City. Peter and the Wolf was originally written in 1936 by a Russian man named Sergei Prokofiev who was the director of the Central Children’s Theatre in Moscow. Sergei’s friend, Natalya Sats, commissioned him to write a symphony for children that would help introduce them to the individual instruments in the orchestra. Sergei finished the symphony on April 24 and Sats even went on to narrate the production that May at the Moscow Pioneers Palace.
