Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Ed Hotaling knows a variety of stories from classic fairy tales to folks tales from around the world. He even tells one about his grandfather. Whether it’s the Three Little Pigs or a folk tale from as far away as Haiti or China, he enjoys them all. Ed has a core of favorite tales and has a few others in reserve! Ed has always loved a good story. Real, made up, old or new, it doesn't matter. Storytelling is an art as old as language. Some of the stories still being told are almost as old, some are made up at the telling. Ed’s grandfather was a tall tale teller who could spin a yarn like a textile mill. Sadly, Ed can only remember one or two of his tales. . The part Ed likes the best is that a spoken tale gets his imagination going. He believes that every listener has a unique experience because we all have different images in our brains as the story unfolds. Each time he tell a story, it comes out a little different. That is the wonder of live performances. The show will be tailored to fit any age group or a particular theme. Ed has picked up a variety of tales from many places around the world. Some are well-known, others are not...yet What to expect: 1) Party size limit of 4. Each party will have a 5 ft diameter circle to sit in. Each circle’s edge is 6ft away from the next.
