Medieval storyteller scheduled
Ozarks will present Martha Hannah,
Medieval Teller of Tales at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 14, as part
of the 2003-2004 Walton Arts & Ideas Series. Tickets are free for
U of O students, faculty and staff, and $10 for the general public.
Hannahs performance of medieval English stories,
comedy and song is the first event of this academic year for the Walton
Program. This years theme is A Tour of the British Isles.
With a cockney accent and clad in period costume,
Hannah, as the hilarious Maid Martha, takes audiences back to an earlier
time by weaving a vivid verbal picture of medieval history, fantasy
and ghost stories in this entertaining and educational show designed
for the whole family. Versatile and dynamic and with a love for working
with a live audience, she draws the audience in and brings them on stage
with hilarious results.
Marthas expressiveness, vitality, great
knowledge of Medieval England, beautiful singing voice and great choice
of musical accompaniment all added up to a rollicking good time,
wrote one reviewer of her show.
An avid arts-in-education advocate, Hannah is a veteran
professional character actor. She is a performing artist on the touring
roster with the Texas Commission on the Arts, the Tennessee Arts Commissions
Arts in Education roster and the Mid-America Arts Alliances Heartland
Arts Fund Program.
