Texas Storytelling Festival: The wonderful art of Storytelling is being held at the Denton Civic Center in Denton, TX from March 10 - 13 at the Denton Civic Center in Texas.

Appearing on stage at the Women's Building on Saturday was Gary Whitker who told the story of "Beowulf," Lorene Stillwell, "The Fisherman's Garden," and Jere Pfister, "What the Storm Brought Home."

I was in awe as I saw each Storyteller get into characterization to tell their unique stories.

Jay Whitaker lit up the stage as he transformed into a wizard telling his version of Beuwolf. He remained focused throughout the performance and told a story that sent shivers down my spine.

 

The Master Storyteller allowed his characterization to come alive through every part of his body and the audience sat on the edge of their seats throughout his performance.

Lorene Stillwell tells the story of her grandparents and their life as they had unraveled tales of their past living by the sea in Scotland. Lorene is another Master Storyteller. I watched with unbelievable eyes as this woman transitioned in voice and characterization back and forth between her Grandmother and her Grandfather in body language, voice and song. America's got talent! When I heard her sing, she sounded very much like Susan Boyle.

Another favorite Storyteller is Jere Pfister from Houston who relives a family secret as she copes with her Aunt's hardship who comes to live with her after Katrina. To hear this woman speak you can't help but feel her emotions.

Behind Jere is the family photograph of her mother and her aunts that was taken in the 1940's. Jere also displays emotion and keeps you on the edge of your seats as the storm resonates within her.

Patricia - you certainly get around. I like your interest in story-telling. I usually tell the truth about Australian animals but local kids think that I am pulling their leg. (taking a lend of them etc)

Good Morning Larry,

I like to support the Arts. I would love to hear your storytelling about Australian animals - I'll bet you have some good stories to tell!

Those local kids don't know how lucky they are to have you around!

Rob,

I think you would have enjoyed it. It's such a different type of art because the people have to get into character, memorize the entire dialog, create interest, and stay focused on what they want to say so that the story unravels like an old embroidered quilt without any mistakes or flaws.

From what I've been told, people come from all over the United States for this festival in Denton. I worked all day, but I heard they were expecting a good crowd and the weather was PERFECT!

I hope you had a great day too.

Patricia
