Boston, Massachusetts—by Dancer Reviews of Boston – Native Stotyteller Doria performs a single show on Halloween day 2020 at the Starlight Theatre.
Storyteller Doria Hughes will be performing for free and telling spooky and silly stories from around the world, in celebration of her favorite holiday – Hallowe’en! Those interested should come in their favorite costume to compete in Starlight’s Hallowe’en Costume Contest.
Doria says, “Ever since I was a very small child, I have read and loved stories of every kind. Now, I delight in sharing them with people of all ages–including adults! Dragons, warriors, queens, tricksters, thunder gods, and animals of every variety – these are the creatures who inhabit the stories I tell.”
Doria’s storytelling is full of sound effects. “If life doesn’t provide enough of them, than I will,” says Doria. Cows, turkeys, donkeys, giants, monkeys, babies, leprechauns…if one can name it, she’ll make it come to life. A Cambridge native and professional Storyteller, Doria creates individualized programs of folktales from around the world for performance in classrooms, book stores, festivals, libraries and private parties. Her dynamic style includes numerous sound effects and she uses her whole body to tell stories – audience participation is encouraged.
Doria tells trickster tales and spooky tales from many different cultures. Her stories come from Nigeria, Japan, Ireland, Native America, Korea, Ghana, Scandinavia, France and many other marvelous places. She also leads Storytelling workshops for elementary and middle schoolers, guiding them through storytelling games and activities, and coaching them to perform their own individualized and collaborative performance projects.
