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.  


Well, April is going to be a big month for the “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry!” show. We have three performances coming up on two different days. Get out your calendars and see if you can catch one of the shows!

The first one will be at The Great Arizona Puppet Theater in Phoenix during the National Day of Puppetry, Saturday, April 20. We are scheduled to present the show at 12 Noon, so if you are in the Valley of the Sun and can come out for a whole day of puppet shows and stuff to do, I hope to see you there.

Our second show will be on Saturday, April 27 in Tucson for the 2013 Fit Fest at Apollo Middle School (265 W Nebraska Street). Our show is scheduled at 11:00 a.m. and again at 1:10 P.M. This fun, all day celebration of fitness events is sponsored by the Grow 2B Fit group. It’s going to be a great time! If you can come, you will be glad you did!

Your friend,
Squirrely Shirley
