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.  


Wow! It’s April already, and that means the National Day of Puppetry on April 26th is just around the corner.
Best of all, the Great Arizona Puppet Theater in Phoenix has included “Squirrely Shirley Discovers the Magic of Science,” as one of the four different puppet shows featured during this awesome day of fun, crafts, parades and puppet madness.

The fun starts at 9:30 a.m. and won’t be over until 4:00 p.m.
If you can come to the party, please don’t miss our 1:00 p.m. performance.

Here are the details:
