Biography

Storyteller Barbara Wong readily admits that—being a bit of a chicken—she’d rather TELL ghost stories than be scared by them herself! Her "Hungry Ghosts" program, a collection of Chinese supernatural tales, was among her most popular at the Honolulu Academy of Arts museum theatre, and the Waikiki Heritage Theatre. She was first to produce storytelling programs for adult audiences at the Academy Theatre—so well-received, she went on to produce 11 programs. Barbara was a featured teller on the Emmy award-winning PBS children’s program “Jakers!” She inaugurated a story walking tour of Honolulu’s Chinatown for Kapiolani Community College, was a Hawaii State Artist-in-the-Schools, a resident storyteller for the Honolulu Zoo and the University of Hawaii’s statewide cultural outreach program. She has shared her multicultural tales at the Los Angeles Storytelling Festival, Hawaii’s Talk Story Festival, Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific; and public libraries in California and Hawaii.
