School activities

Holding a Book Week, after-school or holiday programme, or gala at your school? Treat your students, visiting kids, and adult visitors too to an entertainer who will capture their imaginations, expand their literacy, and open their minds to other worlds, places and times.

For your preschool, I have many well-tested stories, and plenty of experience with whole-group story dramatisation and one-off or ongoing sessions.

With over 30 years performing at various schools and preschools throughout Auckland, I have delighted and enriched hundreds of students with the gift of storytelling.

Call me today to discuss some stories that will fit your classroom topics, or to treat your students to live interactive entertainment off the screen.

For recommendations from schools please contact: Lyn Price (Manuka Primary), Graeme Tregoweth (Redoubt North Primary), Louise Hinvest (Wairau Valley Special), Leigh Primary (Manurewa Primary).

Retirement homes & conferences

We're never too old for a good story! I love to deliver to all ages stories that some may think only a child can enjoy.

So it's not just children's entertainment! Residents of retirement homes look forward to my arrival and the vividness that stories can bring into their lives.

Conference participants can also enjoy stories from Spangle the Storyteller! Call to discuss the theme of your function or conference with me, to see how I can customise a programme of interactive and engaging performances for your needs.

Normally $100 for up to 1 hour - negotiable in special circumstances. No GST.

Thanks to Daphne Pinkney and many others.
