Sample Storytelling Programs

STORYTELLING is one of the oldest and purest art forms. It is about direct communication from teller to listener. There is the story, the teller, the audience and the interplay between them. Storytelling entertains, challenges, teaches and transforms.
And…Storytelling is lots of fun!

 

Sample of Regina’s Programs for Children

MULTICULTURAL TALES

Flexible, participatory programs, designed for occasion, age, special needs. These tales from around the world are organized by theme or culture.

TRICKSTER TALES

Rabbit, Monkey, Anansi, Gluscabi, Kanchil….
All cultures tell tales of these clever and often
stupid Beings who survive the “crocodiles” of life
and also their own mistakes.

BILINGUAL TALES

Latin American stories told in English with a good sprinkling of Spanish…or Spanish, with a good sprinkling of English!

CELEBRATING THE EARTH

Stories and songs which emphasize
the interconnection of all life on earth.
Perfect for Earth Day … or any day.
