Artist’s Statement: Growing up in Philadelphia PA, Rita developed a fascination with different cultures and a love for the spoken word. After working several years in the school districts of Philadelphia and Lititz, PA, she combined her passion for history, culture, teaching and entertaining and turned it into a career in storytelling.  With a repertoire of classic and original stories, Underground Railroad story presentations, and workshops on the art of storytelling, Rita was an inaugural performer at the annual Lititz Storytelling Festival in Lititz, PA and has been blessed to be an artist in residence at the Lititz Elementary School, in her hometown of Lititz PA. Rita has shared at schools, universities, festivals, churches, community and private events in and around Lancaster County, PA.  Rita has also added acting to her repertoire. She has performed in productions for the Ephrata Performing Arts Center, Theater for Transformation, Creative Works of Lancaster and most recently, Denman-Turner Entertainment Group.
