A Very Special Urban Tellers® Invitational

Portland Story Theater is turning 10 and you can help us celebrate by coming to a remarkable story show that features Portland Story Theater founders Lawrence Howard, Lynne Duddy, and Penny Walter, along with a few of our favorite storytellers: Kriya Kaping, Eric Stern, and Leigh Hancock. Urban Tellers:Portland Story Theater This is your invitation to hear some real, true stories.

"Whenever I listen to someone's personal story," offers one audience member, "I start to see myself and feel like I'm walking in their shoes through their story." What Urban Tellers offers goes beyond entertainment; it offers an experience that makes people feel a part of something, something bigger than themselves, something good.  

Urban Tellers shows are at Alberta Abbey
126 NE Alberta with Free Parking and Wheelchair Accessibility - Map and Driving Directions
