Antonio Rocha (pronounced haw-sha) is an award winning storyteller who is originally from Brazil. For the past thirty-five years, Antonio’s unique fusion of spoken word and mime, combined with high energy, a tenor voice, and realistic sound effects have landed him invitations to thousands of schools, libraries, and storytelling events across the United States and fifteen other countries.
Antonio is also the author of the bilingual (Portuguese/English) picture book, The Party in the Sky.

This program is made possible by a collaboration between the Delaware Division of the Arts and the Delaware Division of Libraries.
