More than JUST words, Dan Gibson's progams are for audiences ranging from Pre-K to Post-Retirement and include folk, historical tales, ghost stories (if requested), whoppers, lively sing-alongs.


For more than a dozen years Dan's programs have entertained, created laughter, stimulated thinking and sparked imaginations. Because he's too lazy to do all the work himself, audience participation is required.
