FLESH ON OLD BONES WORKSHOP
Create stories from family history that your family – and others – will want to hear.
By blending genealogy and family history Ellouise created her successful one-woman show Finding Gus .
“Perhaps her discovery that her Grandfather was a sports hero in 1905 – will stir audiences into wanting to know more about the forgotten heroes in their own family.” MD Theatre Guide
This workshop is a combination of genealogy, oral history and storytelling. It offers ideas and new approaches for family history researchers, storytellers and anyone who is gathering ideas for telling stories based on family history.
Maryland storyteller Ellouise Schoettler, a North Carolina native, creates programs which join storytelling with Cultural Preservation to awaken audiences to the value of their stories. Ellouise strives to give voice to the uncommon everyday experience of ordinary men and women.
