For each performance, I draw from my large, ever growing repertoire. I have material from many different cultures, various holidays and themes, and FOR ALL AGES. Generally, I put together what tales I’m going to tell for each specific performance. But, listed below are some of the story “groupings” and titles I sometimes perform. Pick from one of these, ask for something special, or leave it up to me – all these options are available to you.
