Acting in My Fair Lady

In addition to my storytelling, I also enjoy acting. This month I have the privilege to be in the musical production of My Fair Lady at the Crighton Theatre in Conroe. Playing Mrs Pearce the housekeeper, I have had fun on stage with great actors Michael R. Martin, Sara Preisler, and Jim King. And I have also had fun offstage helping with moving the desk, setting up tea services and making sure Eliza is in the right costume. The show runs through February 26.

Using Drama and Storytelling for God

Thank you for viewing my blog. Most of the information has been about storytelling, both mine and other opportunities to see it being done, and about children's books.
But I also wanted to mention my passion for Drama and Storytelling for God. I love telling Biblical stories and especially presenting Biblical and Christian women through drama. The picture shows me as Mary Magdalene, a program I have done at my Life Group at Champion Forest Baptist Church and a couple of other places. I love to bring these women to life and let them share their love for God through drama with an audience. If you know of a ladies group or church who would be interested, please let me know. Thanks.

Feedback from my storytelling program at Central Library inConroe

This summer, I had such a lovely time performing a program of stories and songs at the Central Library in Conroe. Alicia and Laura were so nice and I felt very welcome. 
They did give me some feedback on my performance that is quoted below:

We are so happy we invited Leona Hoegsberg and her “Stories from the Bookworm” to be a part of our 2016 Summer Reading Program!  Her unique storytelling and interactive songs had the kids tied up in laughter and fun!”

Storytelling at the Children's Museum of Houston

Would you like to see me onstage with a group of kids? Take a look at this video, filmed at the Children's Museum of Houston in 2013, I think. Telling the beginning of the story, The Runaway Wok by Compestine, you can see a little glimpse into one of my programs.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hc0Lkphyuxw
