Effron's energetic storytelling programs combine folk, traditional,
and modern tales with songs and audience participation.
Since 1983, Barbara Effron has delighted
children and adults in metropolitan Washington with her enchanting
tales and musical stories. She has performed at schools, libraries,
synagogues, birthday parties, festivals, the Kennedy Center, the
White House, the Smithsonian, and Busch Gardens.
Barbara has an extensive repertoire
of holiday and seasonal programs, as well as more than 100 special
themes and custom designed programs. With her energetic delivery
and enthusiasm, Barbara captures the imagination and takes the audience
on journeys to far-flung places and fascinating people. Her passion
for storytelling is enhanced with music and audience participation.
Her engaging and educational programs reflect her background as
a teacher and children's librarian.
Barbara designs programs for all
ages for a wide variety of interests - with themes that include
multicultural folk and fairy tales, Jewish folk tales, and new stories
from around the world. Her programs, which last from 30 minutes
to an hour, feature puppets, storyboards, and a variety of other
visuals that embrace the audience. Your class or group can "write
your own ticket."
Barbara also offers workshops for
teachers, students, parents, librarians, and others who want to
develop storytelling skills. Barbara's workshops can be specially
designed for in-service programs or to meet special needs.
