Artistic Director and Co-Founder
Teoni is a trained Actor at Bath Spa University, she spent a number of years touring theatres around the country with Theatre companies and organisations. In 2010, along with Lillie, she co-founded Stories and More, initially a company working solely in schools telling interactive stories and now a household name.
When Teoni isn’t telling stories to children across the country, she is trialling new ones to her daughter Olive who always gives an honest opinion! Teoni’s unique flare and original party packages keep the children cheering and whooping for Stories and More parties every weekend of the year!
Questions to Teoni:
What was your favourite story as a child?
Definitely Peace at Last by Jill Murphy, I loved making all the noises and knew the whole book off by heart.
What’s your most exciting part of the company?
Creating a brand new interactive storytelling toy, it is an amazing way to get children (and adults) to use their imaginations. And is a starting block to any story.
What is your favourite joke?
No need to cry!
When you’re not telling stories with Stories and More what do you like doing?
I love belting out a good song, whether it be with a band or to my daughter, whilst dancing around the kitchen.
What is the best thing about working for Stories and More?
Hearing everyone’s wonderful ideas, children have fantastic imaginations and make me laugh a lot!
What is the funniest thing a child has said to you?
When I joked and said I was 3 years old, they told me I couldn’t be because I was wearing a necklace! Who knew that was a way to tell your age!
