Bill Harley
Libbey Bowl, Ojai (All Grades)       

A two time Grammy winning performer, Bill is a masterful storyteller, an incredible singer and an award winning author of children’s books.  Bill connects with students of all ages and his stories are funny, poignant and life-affirming.  A live performance with Bill Harley is an unforgettable experience, there is no one that communicates and understands the world of kids like Bill.  His repertoire includes folk tales, personal stories about growing up, and stories about schools that includes teachers, bus-drivers, cafeteria workers and principals.  Masterful storytelling and comic narrative songs will have students young and old laughing out loud. With slice-of-life vignettes about big trouble and simple pleasures, Bill’s rubber-faced abandon and keen memory will delight students of all ages.

$10 per ticket for groups of 10 or more.

Today’s scholars and researchers say creativity is the top skill our kids will need when they enter the work force of the future. We couldn’t agree more, and we salute YOU for valuing the educational and inspirational power of live performance.


We would like to extend an invitation to you and your students to attend some of the wonderful performances scheduled for the coming school year. There is nothing quite like the performing arts to stir the imagination and elicit critical thinking skills in students.
