National Award-winning storyteller Angela Klingler has been telling stories across the country since 1989, from Mt. Washington to the Yukon and the Laguna Beach Sawdust Arts Festival to San Antonio’s Witte Science Museum. She has been described as “Alternately wise and funny, silly and poignant”. Angela bridges time, culture and community with her animated retellings of traditional world folktales, fables, fairytales, myth, legend and geomythology.
White Mountain storyteller Andy Davis has entertained audiences as far east as Paris, as far south as Bamako, and as far west as San Diego. Davis roams the northern woods with a quiver of tales that include equal parts magical realism, personal experience and multicultural folklore. His varied repertoire includes tales of youthful indiscretion and footloose adventure, multicultural folktales and tales of folk background with an original twist.
Storyteller Lois Royal spins tales from Asia, Europe, Africa, the Appalachians and original works as well. She is fond of the legends of American Indians and Aborigines. “Hearing Lois Royal spin one of her favorite stories makes you want to find a cup of cocoa and your favorite blankie and get lost in the listening” - Attleboro Sun Chronicle. 
Called one of the “120 best living English-speaking storytellers” in Storytellers by Mcfarland Press, Brooklyn-born Bob Reiser has performed original works and tales from around the world and has been a featured teller at festivals from NYC to Vancouver, Canada. Bob’s repertoire includes original zany fables and personal tales of growing-up in Brooklyn - finding joy, pain and laughter in some of life’s most awkward and silly situations. 
For over two decades NH Seacoast naturalist and storyteller Debra Ballou has been telling stories to audiences of all ages incorporating folktales, fairy tales, Native American stories, original stories, personal adventures, and poems. She often uses musical instruments, singing, and/or audience participation to enhance the experience.
