Join us to celebrate the waxing of spring, gathering to create together that same mood of wonder and warmth.
Laurie Portocarrero is an actress, storyteller, and drama teacher, and a long-time resident of Columbia County. She has brought her backgrounds in drama, speech, and movement to her work with Walking the Dog Theater Co, The Actors’ Ensemble, and Shakespeare on the Green, appearing in many plays and original works over the years as well as directing and teaching adults and children of all ages both locally and abroad.
She also has her roots in Waldorf education, and began by teaching kindergarten, telling stories to young children, with songs and a lighted candle and the hush of reverence….
For years she has built on and brought that storytelling to communities far and wide, creating in a hectic, busy, and technological world a space of quiet and reverence together, where the imagination and spoken word enliven and nourish children and grownups alike.
