Thanks for visiting my website

As a busy and dedicated professional storyteller and touring artist, I have established a large repertoire of personal and traditional tales to entertain audiences of all ages. Since 1996, my work has included performances for schools, libraries, concerts, conferences, festivals and community events in several states around the country. During the past 6 years, I have developed and regularly provide storytelling programs to audiences in senior living communities, including people dealing with memory care issues. If you would like more information about my work, or if you are interested in booking a storytelling show, please send a message via the contact link below.  


Last month I did two shows with Glenda Bonin, that storyteller person lady, during the Grow 2B Fit family fitness day at Apollo Middle School in Tucson, AZ. What a blast!
Lots of kids and their families came to celebrate healthy choices. The day featured hands-on activities, like cooking and eating good stuff. They also provided fun exercises for everyone to do: zumba, jump rope, basketball, tennis – things like that. Everyone had crazy-fun time!!
We did “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry.” and the kids had a lot of fun helping me say “bye-bye to Fry-Fry” so I could start to take better care of myself.

Here’s what the organizers said in their thank you note to me: “Your puppet show was incredible and all of the families and other organizations enjoyed it. You have given children and parents an opportunity to learn about healthy eating and living through in a fun and interactive manner.”

Cool, huh?

I have lots more news about our summer plans, and I’ll get back to you with that stuff next time.

Your friend,
Squirrely Shirley
