Storyteller at Pratt branches

Best Bet

July 18, 2002|By Sandy Alexander

Drawing on a background in theater and stand-up comedy, storyteller Bobby Norfolk has spent 18 years developing an animated style he calls "story theater." It uses lots of movement, sound effects and facial expressions to convey both drama and comedy.

Today and tomorrow, Norfolk will be sharing folk tales from around the world at several Enoch Pratt Free Library branches.

These are the first Baltimore appearances for Norfolk. He previously starred in the Emmy award-winning television show Gator Tales and has made several storytelling tapes. While entertaining audiences of all ages, he shares lessons about humanity, respect, teamwork, honesty and responsibility.

Norfolk appears at the Enoch Pratt Free Library Northwood Branch, 4420 Loch Raven Blvd., at 11 a.m. today, 410-396-6076; at the Central Library, 400 Cathedral St., at 1 p.m., 410-396-5402; and at the Light Street Branch, 1251 Light St., at 6:30 p.m., 410-396-1096.

He performs tomorrow at the Cherry Hill Branch, 606 Cherry Hill Road, at 10:30 a.m., 410-396-1168; and at the Pennsylvania Avenue Branch, 1531 W. North Ave., at 1 p.m., 410-396-0399. No registration is necessary.
