Tales Away

Unpack this crate of craziness to let the laughter loose! 

Sharing the colors of the world

Tall tales and short stories
that share everyone’s special uniqueness in the world.
Told with magic, volunteers, silliness, and puppets.

Toby KID brings a menagerie of weirdness right to your library!

Join him on a storytelling safari that will cross paths with lions and tigers and hares - OH MY!

Experience members of the audience being turned into living puppets. They will share in some magical moments of hilarity as they perform a tall tale.

Share in a short story with Toby and his bird. A chaotic tale loaded with slapstick hilarity. 

Show features:

  • Assembling a monster who discovers beauty in its differences

  • ‘Actors’ help demonstrate the thrill of new discoveries

  • Encourages being creative not only in art but within ourselves

  • Slapstick silliness exposes the fun of discovery

Ultimately Toby celebrates bringing a community together with laughter.

5 out of 5 stars!! The kids that were here enjoyed the show.  I would definitely have him back.  I had one Grandma comment that he was the best show that I had out of the four programs!!  Thanks!

Our libraries LOVED Toby!! Excellent program!

I told him that for his quality, I honestly think that he's under-priced.

Would he be available for three programs the same time next year?
