Carol Esterreicher, a member of the Utah Storytelling Guild (www.utahstorytelling.org), tells stories using spoonerisms, lipograms, substitutions and other word play techniques that “tickle the tale” bringing laughter to audiences of all ages. In her workshops story lovers learn how to invent tales such as Ladle Rat Rotten Hoof and Beeping Sleauty! Be sure to listen to the rowdy holiday version of The Chright Before Nistmas (www.storyteller.net/tellers/cesterreicher). Audiences at Solitude Resort have enjoyed her Christmas Eve programs for eight consecutive years.
Like many contemporary storytellers, she tells personal tales such as Tales of the Heart which she performed at the Florida Storytelling Association’s Annual Story Camp’s Sacred Stories concert. During 2015-2027 she instructed and coached storytelling classes at the Murray Heritage Senior Center in Murray, Utah. Personal life stories were encouraged and appreciated.
Carol’s continuing public performance at the Salt Lake City Gallivan Center’s Lunch Bunch at Noon series will be announced in May, 2019. At the Gale Center for History and Culture in South Jordan, Terrific Tuesdays feature Carol’s 2015-2018 storytelling and take-home craft events were scheduled each month on the last Tuesday designated “Terrific Tuesday.
Carol is a recipient of the National Storytelling Network’s Oracle award (www.storynet.org). She enjoyed two seasons with the Traveling Tellers funded in part by the Utah Arts Council. Ca
