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.  


Squirrely Shirley here,

The new show is coming together and I am so excited about my new SUPER HERO outfit. But most of all, I can hardly wait for you to see the COOL Junior Riparian Super Hero Kit I’m putting together for the kids who come see this new program about helping to keep the wetlands around the world clean and safe for everyone and everything.

The storytellerperson-lady, Glenda Bonin, will be sharing a few interactive stories during the show – that means you get to move, repeat and laugh a lot during some of these tales.

Oh, just wait until you see my new autograph. It’s really a good one!

We’re going to have a great time this year. See you soon!!

Your Friend Forever,

Squirrely Shirley
