Story Telling

Captain Jeff

International Dramatic Storyteller

Enjoy this children’s dramatic storytelling show. Grades K-4.

Captain Jeff weaves a tale of fun and adventure that will entertain and inspire. Originally created for a elementary school reading program, the show comes with magical sea shells for all children. The shells are a focus for each child to follow their dreams.

After cross-country storytelling shows for the last six years at Libraries, YMCAs, & B&G Clubs, the Captain is ready to tell his tale to your children.

Captain Jeff’s storytelling was developed into a traveling storytelling show. Initially instigated by Jeff Coleman’s mother, the 30 minute show which includes two chapters from A Captain Without A Ship, a 9 foot by 8 foot island back drop, three peppy songs, and magical sea shells for each listener. The shells are used as a focus to follow your dreams. The story is entertaining as well as inspiring and has been told cross-country for seven years at Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, and libraries (see some past shows).

          “I like the way he changed his voice!” “I liked his peppy songs” “Excellent storyteller!” “I wish he was my dad!” These are just a few of the comments children made after I told my story at elementary schools in Tucson.

Captain Jeff’s storytelling show has recently been filmed and will run on local Tucson Access TV stations in its entirety. Contact if interested 520-370-8051
