Storytelling and seniors

I thought THIS might be helpful for those wanting to initiate storytelling into their recreation programs to fill the void left by the fact that Prometheus, Pandora and I are rarely visiting seniors homes anymore.

Theatre and storytelling isn't just kid's stuff!

Thanks Toronto Storytellers!

Guelph Backyard Theatre

This was a great summer 2018 project. Mary's Wedding by Stephen Massicotte, performed in the backyard of John McCrae's birthplace in Guelph.


Keep watching Project-to-Project Theatre for more live theatre in Guelph ON.

The puppets say "Goodbye"

After 8 years of entertaining children and seniors, the puppets are saying farewell.

I'm still doing lots of live entertainment, and story telling, but Pandora's Sox is closing.

We've enjoyed travelling throughout Ontario. Met wonderful people, gained terrific memories.

Thanks to all who attended these shows.

And thanks for all the fun.

Jay, Pandora, Prometheus, Lionel, Ghostie, Valerie, Ziggy, Petunia

PS Yes Pandora and Prometheus still do occasional appearances, but the rest of the gang has disbanded.

The smallest theatre company in Ontario

"A Ticket To Morrow"

This is a routine written by Prometheus. He has a strange sense of humour.

Similar to "Who's On First", "A Ticket to Morrow" is pure silliness, but VERY hard to perform as it really makes no sense at all and I'm stuck with having to play both parts!
