Storytelling is old and new. It is told and sung. It is loud and quiet. It is for listening and for joining in. It will stir your heart. It will make you laugh. It will help you remember. It will last forever. 

Storytelling with Terry Schupbach-Gordon is a moment of unbridled enthusiasm. The stories themselves come from everywhere and have taken on the flavor of the southeastern US where Terry is from. The programs include music, puppets and always, audience participation. Workshops with Terry are designed to give 

confidence to new storytellers and encourage them to find their unique voice and develop ways of using storytelling in everyday life and making puppets to enhance those stories. Storytelling programs and workshops connect us to the past and help us to create a future full of joy and wonder.
