Dolores Hydock, a Pennsylvania native, calls Birmingham Alabama home when she’s not touring the world or filming. Dolores was bitten by the storytelling bug at an early age – only 5 years of age to be precise. A tiny framed girl took the stage at a Reading storytelling competition and she walked away a giant with the blue ribbon and her desires set on the performing arts.
Dolores Hydock has gone on to perform in one-woman plays, teach acting, and produce ten award winning CD’s featuring her original stories. She’s been the featured storyteller at the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee as well as the Teller-In-Residence at the International Storytelling Center. Dolores’s tremendous success is mirrored by her tremendous imagination.
Dolores isn’t a stranger under the storytelling tent in Athens, she last appeared at the Athens Storytelling Festival in 2012. Attendees of the 10th Annual Athens Storytelling Festival will enjoy her return as they are woven into the tapestry of her tales and caught up in her contagious excitement as she burst with energy and motion on the stage.
The 10th Annual Athens Storytelling Festival will occur from October 18th to October 22nd in downtown Athens, Alabama. For schedule, ticket and teller information, visit their website here
