Larry Castleberry is a storyteller, freelance voice actor, and narrator, based in Detroit, MI. He is very much involved in the Japanese martial art of Aikido as a student (he holds a 5th degree black belt) and as an instructor at St. Mary’s of Redford Church (Detroit, MI) and the Ferndale Kulick Center (Ferndale, MI). In his storytelling, he intertwines the martial arts lessons of discipline, perseverance, and focus with lessons and experiences from his own life. He also tells stories from African, Japanese, and African-American traditions. As a kindergartener, Larry first fell in love with the power of storytelling. He has continued to channel his love for the craft through his involvement in Toastmasters (he is a 9-year member), the Park Players Theater group, and the Detroit Association of Black Storytellers. He loves to entertain, delight, and educate audiences through his unique blend of theatrics, baritone voice, and interaction with the audience.

In  1988,  the  first  Tellabration!  concerts  were  performed  at  six  locations  in  the  state  of  Connecticut.  J. G.  Pinkerton,  the  originator  of  Tellabration!,  envisioned  the  event  as  a  way  of  fostering  and  maintaining  the  art  of  storytelling.  It  was  a  great  success qcsj  and  in  the  following  year  Tellabration!  concerts  soon  spread  to  other  states.  In  1990,  Tellabration!  became  a  national  event  with  the  help  of  the  National  Storytelling  Association.  Its  popularity  continues  to  spread  and  now  thousands  of  storytelling  groups  worldwide  produce  Tellabration!  concerts.
