Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

As a performer I have reinvented myself several times (Whispers the Clown, Magician, Puppeteer, Mother Goose, Granny Magic and Storyteller Glenda Bonin). These new directions have taken place in response to a need to pivot and redirect my talent, energy, and interests to reach new audiences and grow. I am currently developing a new body of work relating to the Westward Movement and Arizona History. This is not to say that I am no longer available to the audiences I have served in the past. This is simply a new direction and focus of my energy as I continue to grow as a performer and storyteller.  

 

We’ve had a bunch of fun bringing the latest show, “Squirrely Shirley Discovers the Magic of Science,” to kids and families in libraries around Arizona.
Best of all, there are a lot of new names in my fan club! It’s so cool to have fans close to home, because I get to see them more often than my friends in California, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Washington. This month, I got a fan letter from the audience and librarians in Pine, Arizona. The card said, “We loved your show – Still talking about it! THANK YOU.” Keep those cards and letter coming, I love em.

Totally Yours

Squirrely Shirley
