From their website:

Twice Upon a Time Storytellers utilize the ancient art of storytelling to explore the complex and challenging issues facing us in our modern society. Through the experience of listening to and sharing stories, children and adults alike can be united in their families, schools, work places, communities and therapeutic settings.  Storytelling opens us up to understanding the connections we have with others around our wonderful globe. Discover this new world with Dallas storytellers Gene and Peggy Helmick-Richardson.

Traveling from preschools to prisons, Twice Upon a Time Storytellers have been sharing their tales together since 1999. Gene and Peggy's presentations blend this ancient oral tradition with personal narrative, science, history, modern nuance, cultural diversity and sometimes a soupcon of silliness to allow audiences to see the world in many new and imaginative ways.
