Urban TellersEveryone has a story. What's yours? Urban Tellers gives people a chance to showcase their original personal story. Like a live wire act, these people tell their stories without a net -- no notes, no script. Stories that have never been told before, until now...
What's our recipe for an extraordinary
evening of entertainment?
Take a group of ordinary people.
Stir to combine.
Add four weeks of workshop sessions.
Discover, craft, and shape personal stories.
Add plot, conflict, resolution.
Incorporate feedback and collaboration.
Let rise again.
Gently fold in transformation.
Sprinkle with laughter, feeling, meaning and authenticity.
Let rise one more time.
Turn out onto the Portland Story Theater stage at Hipbone Studio.
Add snacks, libations and audience.
Serve stories face-to-face, eye-to-eye, and heart-to-heart.
