Mitch and Martha have not retired! It is true that they have reduced their residency schedule to allow more time for Author Visits and writing (the Noodleheads series and other projects). Due to the multi-year nature of residencies, Martha and Mitch will no longer be accepting new residencies as of 2019. Listed below are upcoming PUBLIC performances/workshops/keynotes by Beauty and the Beast Storytellers. The majority of their work is in schools and other places/situations that are not normally open to the public. If you wish to preview one of Mitch and Martha's non-public performances, feel free to contact them for information about dates when they may be in your area.
