Hello! If you are looking for interactive storytelling programs, then you have come to the right place! I offer high-energy, humorous, fully-engaging programs based on folktales from Africa, India, Russia, Mexico, Haiti, the Iroquois and more!
I also have programs suitable for holidays, including a story introducing audiences to the Russian Santa Claus for Christmas and another introducing the Mexican holiday, The Day of the Dead, which is perfect for Halloween!
Additionally, I offer an original program based on my children's book, Lily and the City of Light, as well as workshops for children and adults.
And of course, more projects are always in the works! Coming soon are folktales from Laos, Egypt, Sierra Leone and Turkey. If you don't see what you're looking for, just ask. I may be able to develop a program that fits your needs!
Keep up with where I'm performing at the "World of Difference Ltd." facebook page!
In addition, World of Difference Ltd. will be releasing our first DVD, "Flight to India" in 2011. This DVD, which takes children on the adventure of imagination and captures the power of story, is based on our program, "The Monkey and the Crocodile." Visit our website or the "Flight to India" fan page on facebook to learn more.
World of Difference Ltd. is based in North Canton, Ohio, but will tour to just about anywhere! I am especially interested in performance opportunities outside the US where I can learn about and experience other cultures first-hand. If you are interested in learning more, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I'm going to be giving a writing/storytelling workshop to a group of 2nd grade students next year, and one of the things I'm interested in doing is giving them a list of ways to begin a story. (ie; Once upon a time. . . Many, many years ago. . . etc.)
I'd also like to give them some of the ways that stories start in other cultures (like Cric? Crac! in Haiti) I know there are a lot of neat ways out there from all over the world! Those of you…Continue

You can send me a message my oops page or reach me…Continue
