Jeff Gere has been telling stories for the Summer Fun program for over 30 years. Twenty-seven of those years were spent as the Drama Specialist for the City & County of Honolulu’s Parks Department. After he retired in 2014, he continued storytelling, toured internationally and now brings his storytelling to you via YouTube!
MAY 25: TWO TALES of TIME ENTWINED
Why would an adult man devote his waking breathing creative time to storytelling? Jeff has answered this question with two Sufi tales, “King for a Year & A Day” & “The King Obsessed with Time” (here they are entwined.)
MAY 26: TESTING GOD & POI POUNDER
While listening to a virtual storytelling show, Jeff recalled a very disturbing story heard on tour at a Maui Garage Sale, “Testing God.” It’s creepy! And continuing that theme, Jeff shares a jarring tale surrounding a poi pounder.
MAY 27: THREE SAMOAN TALES
Long ago, Jeff (and storyteller MakiaMalo) toured American Samoa. These three eerie tales came back with him. Now they’ll linger awhile with you.
