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.  


Hi Friends, It’s June 1st and vacation time!
I am going with that story-teller-person-lady-Glenda Bonin to California to see a friend graduate and then hopefully to meet with some people who may want to sponsor us for our 2012-2013 tour, “Squirrely Shirley Meets Fry-Fry”. I am so excited about the future!
One really nice part is that I have my good friend, Sam Dragonetti, tree-sitting for me to water my plants, bring in the mail and all that stuff you need to do at home. It is the first time he has stayed in a tree and we both hope it works.
Your Friend Squirrely Shirley
