Dean Verger

Dean came to the world of Storytelling as a writer. He began by telling his own original works, then added traditional tales for all ages from all over the world.

He has acted with Ottawa's Theater For Children, Orpheus, and Ottawa Little Theater. He has appeared at Centrepointe Theater, on stage at the National Arts Centre's Fourth Stage, and in the Museum of Nature. He has performed his original works on both radio and television and across Canada at festivals, cafes, and libraries.


Dean's latest project is a one-hour storytelling adaptation of Herman Melville's Moby Dick. He is touring the show through BC, beginning in Vancouver, then moving to Victoria, Parksville, and finishing in Nanaimo. For more information about the show and the last tour, please click here.


Dean also owned and ran Rasputin's Folk Cafe in Ottawa, Canada. This little club started in 1981. In that time he hosted thousands of concerts featuring musicians, storytellers, actors, and poets. Dean also gives workshops for large and small groups.
