“When Cats Could Fly…” Indy Fringe show for families awarded 5 stars for kids by Nuvo News

Reviewer Scott Shoger of Nuvo News awards 5 stars out of 5 for child audiences to the Indy Fringe Show “When Cats Could Fly…” This show by storyteller Brother Wolf will be opening three more times on Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week.

Scott Shoger of Nuvo News Writes… “Cats could fly back during Brother Wolf’s New York City childhood, a time when Roman Candles were subbed out for real ones on birthday cakes– and when sleds could fly too, right down an icy hill into eight lanes of traffic (and that’s how Wolf got his first speeding ticket, at age 9). With his ability to bring to life eccentric characters like a WWI vet and Vodou priestess, Wolf is the kind of gentle, playful, imaginative storyteller you loved to sit before, Indian-style, back in your youth.” Published in Nuvo News – Wednesday, August 24, 2011 Read more »

Child tellers speak out: what they wish adults knew.

One of the most touching storytelling interviews I have done to date. I love the passion in Rachel’s voice and storytelling as she tells the story of Black socks. I hope you are inspired in your work with child storytellers.

——-Rachel writes…
Child tellers often have silent wishes regardless if they attend elementary, middle, or high school. When given the chance to speak, these are the top three wishes:

1. Wish to meet other child tellers
2. Wish to have friends rather than coaches
3. Wish to be leaders

Perhaps you will be the one to help grant these wishes.
