Shows, Workshops & Special Events

My storytelling programs celebrate the wonderful diversity of our community cultures, the beauty of our natural environments and the joy which comes with sharing our stories.
My storytelling shows combine traditional, original and picture book stories, woven together with the soulful sounds of world percussion- the frame drum, ocean drum, ocarina and kalimba. Highly interactive and playful, the audience is invited to help tell the stories using music, drama, rhyme, dance and song.
My storytelling workshops are an empowering and relaxing way to learn some storytelling and creative skills, as well as to reflect on working with stories and creative play as a vital part of children’s development and education. You will develop your creative toolkit, explore many ways to tell a story, and share ideas about writing and telling engaging stories with children.
