Thanks for your interest in the art of storytelling!

I love being a storyteller, and am always pleased when I have opportunities to share personal stories, world folktales and western history narratives. As a touring performer and workshop presenter, my work has taken me all around the country. I provide workshops and entertain audiences of all ages at schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events. Most recently, I’ve been telling stories to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues.  


Woo-Hoo! What a grand time we had putting on the “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry!” show to a huge crowd at the Great AZ Puppet Theater in Phoenix last Saturday. The National Day of Puppetry is always so much fun.

I really excited about doing the show again, because we’ve added some new stuff to the show and now it really rocks!! Best of all, the audience gets to help me say, “Bye-Bye to Fry-Fry!
Bring the whole family to Apollo Middle School (265 W Nebraska Street) in Tucson on Saturday, April 27th. The Grow 2B Fit Family Fit Fest (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) will be lots of fun, and you may learn some new and fun ways to stay fit. Best of all, the whole event is FREE!!

See ya!!

Your friend,
Squirrely Shirley
