Portland Storytellers' Guild June 2014Life Out Loud: Frustrating Funny & True Stories
Friday, June 6, 2014

Hipbone Studio
1847 E. Burnside, PDX 97214

A hunter, a clown, and a lady walk into a bar…and begin to tell stories. They’re soon joined by a Hawaii boy, a Virginian gentleman, and a Resident alien (female, English) who begin to tell their own stories. Join the party and enjoy an evening of true stories about brothers, fathers, mothers, and ladies. Hilarious and poignant, these tales explore the foibles, frustrations, and fun of living life out loud.

Featuring Norm Brecke (the hunter), Alton Chung (the Hawaii boy), Rick Huddle (the Virginian gentleman), Anne Penfound (the Resident alien, female, English), Gretchen Peterson (the lady), and Thomas Schroyer (the clown).

To Gladden the Heart Tales Straight from the Pages of the Brothers Grimm

From Iron John and Rumpelstiltskin to the Frog Prince and more, six tellers will entertain you with stories from the collected works of the Brother’s Grimm. This was such a hit last year so we’ve decided to repeat the show but with new stories from this vast collection that has enchanted every generation since they were published.

Storytellers include Barbara Fankhauser, Steven Henegar, Will Hornyak, Ken Iverson, Anne Rutherford and Anne-Louise Sterry


These shows, presented in Hipbone Studios renown Black Box theatre, are intended for an adult audience including mature teenagers.

    Oh, I just love listening to story telling (mostly on NPR). I am an avid reader and have actually moved to Portland so I can tell stories to my grandson live. He has become quite a wordsmith and is now writing/telling his own stories at age 6. This sounds like a wonderful evening. June 7th would be preferable.

    If you have nothing else you will still have stories: stories about your life; stories about family members; stories about friends; and stories about things that have made you who you are. Stories are what get one through the death of a loved one. Stories can get you through a life crisis; stories are a way of sharing the joy of an experience. Stories are what can make us eternal.

    Listening to these folks stories will be a joy and can influence the way I tell stories and that will be a joy.

    Stories about our experiences and lives are the crux of sharing with our family and friends.

    Never been to a professional story telling event….this would be a worthwhile and interesting
    way to spend an evening.

    Enjoy your day!

    I’d like to win tickets for Friday night because I finally have a Friday night off and the wife LOVES story telling. How about helping me create a story of my own with tickets! :)

    I love stories! As much as I would love to go to both nights, if I have to pick one, I pick “Life Out Loud: Frustrating Funny & True Stories.” I’m already aware of Grimm Fairy Tales, so I’d like to hear some stories that I haven’t experienced yet.

    I just moved to Portland 4 days ago! I love stories; in fact one of my most used greetings among my friends is “tell me a story”
    I also collect fairy tales, myths, and lore from around the world, and love the art of oral story telling. I would be happy to attend either night!

    I moved to Portland three years ago now and one of the highlights for me has been attend story-telling; and in particular listening to Eric Foxman.

    Even though he is not on the program we hope to attend on Saturday night.

    I love listening to live stories as a way to experience a kind of authenticity that we’re simultaneously afraid of yet hungry for. june 6th works
