the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts

I've been doing a weekly performance playgroup in Concord, MA at three different venues for the past two years. It is for children age 0-4 and their caregivers. During that time I have not charged the audience but have gotten local business to sponsor me at times. Overall it has been a great experience, has given me plenty of leads and certainly helped me hone my storytelling and musical skills. I'd love to share my experience with folks and get advice for taking this type of family oriented venue to another level. - Tim

Nice to see you here Tim.

Jody Fein is a Moose member who does preshcool storytelling at the Whole foods Market in Portland. The market sponsors her and gives coupons to families to shop with after the shows.
Jody is also working on other business venues, Drop her a line and say Learnin' Vernon sent you.
I will give her a heads up.

(Just as a FYI reminder I was the crazy guy you roomed with at STF NSC)
Do you have to get the sponsorships or is someone the middle man for you? Sponsorships are a good idea. In my own town I will get sponsored for events (sometimes business(Target) sometimes groups(kiwanis etc..) that type of thing. Andrea
