Performance
Interactive Folktales with “Sophisticated Attitude!”

With Linda Gorham’s stories, be prepared to expect the unexpected! Linda’s engaging, interactive stories often have surprising twists as she uses movement, humor and sometimes zaniness to tell multicultural folktales updated with ‘sophisticated attitude.’ Performance Lesson Plan

Max Participants: 325

Duration: 45 minutes.

Special Requirements:
In rectangular multi-purpose rooms, gyms, or meeting rooms, I would like to have the audience face one of the longest walls. Please provide a six-foot table at the front of the room (off to one side). If there is a ledge, that will work too. In large spaces, I’d also like at least 10 feet of space from the wall to the start of the audience line. For groups over 100, please plan to have an aisle about three feet wide down the middle of the audience. This will help when I bring audience members up in front. Cones work well as aisle markers. For school assemblies, I prefer that chairs for adults are placed on the sides in the room so adults can see, monitor, and ENJOY the students more easily. Sound system provided by performer.
