Award winning author, Michael Todd Gallowglas, escapes his keyboard and dons his Cloak of Tales, taking to the stage, spinning stories of adventure, mystery, and wonder. His breath-taking perfomrances have entertained audiences for nearly two decades. With original stories and traditional folk tales from around the world, these stories will delight one and all with twists and turns, with surprise endings which few will anticipate. Choose a story from the fabled Cloak of Tales and find yourself transported into worlds previously undreamed of.
Mr. Unrooley: In his solo show, Mr. Unrooley wows the crowd with feats of magic! He’ll leave you asking “how did he do that” and wanting more! Appearing three times daily, Mr. Unrooley is a magician of the first order, with over 15 years experience in the festival circuit.
