Directory Member Since:


Professional Storyteller Carol Esterreicher especially loves to use word play strategies to “tickle” a tale. Spoonerisms, substitutions, omissions are among her tools she has used for over 15 years. As a speech pathologist, and an active member of Toastmasters International, she has developed a close relationship with words!

Fairy tales, Aesop’s fables, urban legends, seasonal and holiday stories, and myths delight family audiences on festival stages and other settings. Carol’s personal tales “tug at your heartstrings” calling to mind images, memories, and emotions we share as members of the human family.

In workshops, Carol generously shares handouts from her book, SCAMPER Strategies—Fundamental Activities for Narrative Development (1995). Carol is one of seven storytellers on the Utah Arts Council’s 2007-2008 performing artists tour.

Your voice tone, animation, and repetition created an enchanting atmosphere."

Carol, I love the way you pace your story based upon the audience feedback. You know how to read your audience."
--Janine Nishiguchi, former President of The Utah Storytelling Guild

“We appreciate you having taken the time to come on Christmas Eve (2004, 2005, 2006). Your wonderful talent added so much to the evening for our guests. We look forward to having you back! “
