Storyteller heads to Corner House
Popular storyteller David Neufeld, of Lovell ME, makes his first featured appearance at the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner program on Thursday,
March 22nd. A physical storyteller, David Neufeld has been described as "a cross between Mark Twain and Gary Larson (creator of 'The Far Side')". Combining character acting, illusion, and a mixed-up sense of humor, myth, and lyricism, David Neufeld has entertained over a million people in twelve countries in the past 30 years. He especially enjoys small atmospheric settings like The Corner House where the farthest listener is within five paces of the stage.
The evening will include two comic original stories inspired by Bill Cosby's and Red Skelton's style of telling. A third story is adapted from an Inuit myth and set in downeast Maine. Lastly, his program will include the most popular story of his career which is told with animated hand-shadows, many of which he has invented.
David’s unconventional and eclectic approach to storytelling resulted in his founding and directing The New England Modern Storytelling Festival, which ran for six years in the 90's. David enjoys saying: “I have told by candle-light in the campo's of central America, performed with the Nicaraguan National Circus, on the streets of Florence, Italy and southern Morocco, and in so many towns in the northeast US that I can pick out a winning diner from two miles away.”
Storytelling Dinners are held every Thursday evening at the Corner House from late Oct. through May. Dinner begins at 6:30 pm and includes salad, entrée, dessert, coffee and complimentary glass of wine. The cost for dinner and the storytelling is $19.95 per person, plus tax & gratuity.
