Meet Hila Ben Gera

I am a professionally trained Theatre -maker (Actress, Director, Playwright) and a children’s storyteller with over a decade of experience.

I was born in Jerusalem, Israel. I graduated from “Yoram Levinstein’s Performing Arts Institute” in Tel Aviv and completed the “Herbert Berghof Studio” – Playwriting and Stage Directing training in NYC. ​

​My goal in my interactive storytelling shows, plays, and workshops is to spur the creative spirit in children, encouraging them to use their imaginations and giving them a sense of well-being and joy in the world. Teach them to think fast, develop confidence, and learn social skills through the magic of theatre.
