Hello! If you are looking for interactive storytelling programs, then you've come to the right place! I offer high-energy, humorous, fully-engaging programs based on folktales from around the world! Programs are perfect for all ages, from preschoolers to older adults and are designed to make the audience active participants in the story!

I have programs suitable for many different holiday celebrations, and the stories I tell cover a wide-range of themes, from friendship and generosity to caring for the earth and respecting elders. In addition to my programs based on folktales, I also offer performances based on my original stories and children's books as well as Biblical stories, such as the Parables of Jesus.

I teach workshops on storytelling, story-writing, and creative drama and movement for children and offer a variety of professional development workshops for adults. If you still don't see what you're looking for, just ask! With enough advance notice, I may be able to develop a program that fits your needs!

          * * *


I also have two DVDs based on my interactive storytelling programs. Both take children on an adventure of imagination while opening them up to the wonder of storytelling. The first, Flight to India, is based on the famous Indian folktale, The Monkey and the Crocodile. The second, Voyage to Russia, is based on the Russian folktale, Babushka. These as well as my children's books (Lily and the City of Light, O Christmas Tree and 'Twas the Year Christ Left Christmas) are all available at Amazon.com.

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 or visit: http://www.lindsaybonilla.com

You can keep up with where I'm performing and what's new at the

"Lindsay, Many Native-American stories begins with "Long ago when the world was young. . ."  And in some places in Scotland they begin with "About 200 years ago. . ."   Have fun.   Sláinte mhath, Melanie"

Once upon a time. . .

Hello everyone, 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 who have lived and worked overseas,…See More

Know any Troll Stoires?

Hello friends,

 

I'm looking for troll stories and thought maybe some of you might know of some! An organization near where I live is doing a whole event with trolls sometime this fall. They said that they would like to have a historical story with a central troll character which they are then planning to use as their mascot, so if any of you have any favorite troll stories that you think might fit the bill, please let me know! You can send me a message my oops page or reach me…

You are welcome, Lindsay. I do hope that you will be at OOPS! Conference in 2011. Might you consider sending in a workshop proposal? We love to hear from new voices and points of view. And, is there any possibility that you could join us, and meet many of us, at the Regional meeting, probably beginning at 1PM, November 6th in Athens? Jonatha

Hi Lindsay, Nice to meet another Ohio Storyteller! I see you are from N. Canton. Just as we are new to your organization, World of Difference is new, to me at least. As someone new to this new website, you may not know much about our organization: OOPS! We serve all of Ohio, surrounding states, and any who just want to join us. Dues are modest, at $15 per year. We have a conference each year, the upcoming one is April 29, 30, May 1, in Mt. Vernon, OH. We have a quarterly newsletter. We have Regional meetings twice a year to meet our members and recruit. Our next regional is Nov. 6 in Athens, OH, library. Another service for members is a page on the OOPS website. You can see that we have a lot to offer members, please join. Plus, we want to meet you, and to hear your stories! We want to know more about World of Difference. And we want to keep you on this website! Sincerely Jonatha Wright, OOPS! President
