Maichack, Mary Jo (and Gregory) A Universe of Stories Programs Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
I entered this title to help you find the programs I've included that fit well for the theme of summer reading 2019: How to Tell a Story, Make a Mini Moonscape Puppet Theater of Paper & Popsicle Sticks, and Sun, Moon, Stars, Shine! You could also book Around the World in Tales and Tunes, Fairy House Craft or any other program. My storytelling is never a just-sit-and-listen to me approach! I learned over 30 years of full-time storytelling performing and teaching, that everyone is happiest when DOING--SO my folktales always offer the audience opportunities to echo or fill in dialogue, sing or chant or clap along; I usually give them a fun dance such as the Alligator Stomp, so we are moving and varying sitting with moving. Sometimes I bring costumes for a splashy volunteer act-it-out story. Sometimes I use origami. But I ALWAYS give the audience lots of variety, ways to participate and laughs.
