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.  

 

I’ve been expanding my media outreach lately by working on improving my video presence as a storyteller, puppeteer and performer. I also plan to use the video skills I’m developing to help market “The Storyteller’s Place,” our Bed and Breakfast business scheduled to open later this year.  

I recently produced two short video segments about how to be a storyteller. My goal for the series called “Story Basics,” is to provide short teaching segments (each 3 to 5 minutes in length) for people who want to know more about the art of storytelling.

Storyteller Ron Lancaster prefers to be close to the audience.

The first in this series is 2 minutes 55 seconds long, and it covers the importance of knowing your audience. To view the segment, just follow this link:

Finding stories to tell is the subject for the second video. This one is a bit over three minutes long. Please click on the following link to watch it.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=4CbEw4Jxg2g&NR=1

If you watch either one (or both) of these videos, I’d appreciate it if you take a moment to click on the “like” button and/or add a comment or question. This will help me determine if what I’m doing is helpful. Your comments and questions will also help me determine what subjects to cover in the future. 

So far, I’m considering producing videos on the following topics 

  • “How to Learn and Remember a Story”
  • “Different Ways to Tell a Story”
  • “How to Evaluate Your Own Storytelling Work” 
  • “How to Tell Your Own Original Stories”

There are many different storytelling topics I will be happy to explore in this blog, so if you have a specific subject you’d like to know more about, just let me know in the comment section below. I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks!
