Storytelling is not only the most ancient of art forms and the most effective form of communication, it is also one of the most satisfying performance experiences an audience can have. Each story provides the listener with a new doorway into the deep world of the imagination, galvanizing our inner world, enriching it with images, landscapes and peopling it with life.
Diane Edgecomb – storyteller/theatre artist and author

“I’m still getting positive feedback examples: ‘Best thing I ever heard on campus.’ ‘Let’s make it an annual event etc..,” – Joan Laxon, Professor of Anthropology and Folklore, Pine Manor College
From fairytales and myths that dovetail English core-curriculum to nature and science oriented programming and multi-cultural tales including those from Native Americans and the Kurds of the Middle East, Diane’s interactive performances bring learning alive.
