A performing storyteller since 1987, Elizabeth Matson grew up in her mother’s Children’s Theatre Company and read her way through the fairy tale section of her childhood public library.
She is a spinner of tales, weaving magic into her original performances of fairy, folk, personal, and family history tales. Elizabeth brings stories to life with her expressions, movement, and voice.
She offers performances, workshops, and story coaching for all ages. She is the co-author, with Stuart Stotts, of The Bookcase Ghost: A Storyteller’s Collection of Wisconsin Ghost Stories (Midwest Traditions, 1996). She holds a MA in Folklore and MS in Library Science. She coaches her library’s teen storytelling troupe, has performed at the Whitewater (WI) Storytelling Festival, and performs virtually with 4 Women Telling.
