Frequently, I receive a call from someone looking for a specific story or perhaps a specific theme.   I always enjoy the challenge of finding new material and incorporating it into my repertoire, as long as I have the time to work on it.  If you are looking for something for your school, library, park district, or even a birthday party, please feel free to contact me so we can discuss your ideas.  


I also love to connect people to other storytellers or entertainers if I think they may better suit your needs.  There are many talented artists in the Chicagoland area, and I'm blessed to know many of them.  Call me or email me anytime to chat.  I'd love to hear from you!

Below some of my custom made programs that became popular:

STORYACTING BIRTHDAY PARTY - Storyacting / 60 min / Ages 3-10

One of my most popular programs!


Storyacting is a terrific way to celebrate a birthday whether you are a boy or a girl. With a dozen books to choose from, the birthday party child can choose three stories they like best, and would like to be featured in.

I bring the costumes and props that go with the three stories, and we share in a theatrical experience that you won't forget.

Storyacting can be performed in your home, outside, or just about any place you can imagine. All we need is a playing space, one small table and several eager friends that enjoy using their imagination.

Would you like to custom design the party? Just contact me and let's chat about the possibilities.

FAIRY ADVENTURE PARTY - Storyacting/Acting Games / 45-60 min / Ages 4-7

Little Girls love to have their Fairy Grandmother appear at their birthday party to create a bit of Fairy Magic. The girls all become fairies, and play a variety of fairy games using their best imaginations, creating a memorable birthday they won't forget.


We play creative drama games and use our basic acting skills to create our own fairy magic that is far more powerful  and full of fun and frolic. 


Boys are welcome to join in the fun as well, and can be a variety of characters from frogs to sprites and elves. 


Don't have your own fairy wings? No worries, Fairy Grandmother has plenty for you to wear!

DADDY & DAUGHTER - Storyacting/Acting Games / 60 min / Girls 4-10 & Dads

Dads and daughters love having a special night out and this workshop is chalk full of building wonderful memories they won't ever forget. The girls come as their favorite princess or fairy and the dads play all of the other characters in a variety of scenes we act out together. Everyone is engaged in a highly creative session of imagination and fun. Workshops include: Snow White, Cinderella, Little Mermaid, Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and The Beast and Fairyland.

MRS. CLAUS - Storyacting / 30-90 min / Ages 2-10

Christmas is a wonderful time for stories and Mrs. Claus is a great storyteller. While Santa is kept busy delivering toys, Mrs. Claus is busy choosing stories to share with children and their families. She visits malls, museums, and even rides on the Polar Express in some towns.


Why not invite her to share storyacting or storytelling at your special event?  She loves to spread holiday magic and cheer to all she meets.  Stories can be related to Christmas or they can simply be winter tales.  The possibilities are endless.
