Urban Tellers:Portland Story Theater

Urban Tellers®

Everyone has a story to tell. What's yours? Urban Tellers gives audiences the chance to witness the unfolding artistic expression of ordinary people, just like you, who are working with us to build a new narrative for our community, one story at a time.

May 10th
[$15 Advance | $20 at Door]

The May 10th showcase features these Urban Tellers®: Wendy Allegaert, Warren McPhearson, Sean Talbot, Jeri Jenkins, and Leigh Hancock.

"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.

Portland Story Theater is reshaping our community's narrative, one story at a time. Check it out. Be a part of the change. Come hear some real, true stories.  

Urban Teller shows are at Hipbone Studio
