After a childhood in segregated New Orleans, Mary Gay Ducey moved to Berkeley just in time for the protest marches and sit-ins. From a childhood steeped in tradition and heritage to beginning her own family amidst the social unrest of the sixties, Ducey lived the social change which swept the country. As a storyteller, she draws from her life experiences to delight audiences with her humorous and insightful tales that mix personal and historical, literary and folk.
Mary Gay Ducey tells fresh versions of fairy tales, family mayhem and little known pieces of history. Ellen Munds, the executive director of Storytelling Arts of Indiana will never forget when she heard Mary Gay tell a version of Rapunzel at Winter Tales in Oklahoma City; “the story touched my soul. I can’t wait to hear it again. Please believe me, it is not the story you heard growing up.”

Before Ducey takes the stage, Indiana storyteller Deborah Asante will share a story. Asante discovered she was a storyteller while attending the First Annual Hoosier Storytelling Festival in 1988. She had been telling stories her entire life but didn’t know that people made a living doing it. The arts Council of Indianapolis recognized the work of Deborah by giving her two Creative Renewal Fellowships. Many may know her as the founder and artistic director of the Asante Children’s Theatre.
