Celebrated author Philip Pullman said, “After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” On Saturday, July 11th, nourish your spirit with Portland Story Theater’s last Urban Tellers® show of the season. Showcasing the real, true stories of ordinary people, Urban Tellers® performances are shaped by the truth of the present moment. With only ten minutes to tell their stories, our six tellers take the stage and share a defining moment of their lives. Sometimes funny, often surprising, but always touching, the performances explore the craft of storytelling in its most authentic and vulnerable state.
Featuring: Veronica Swehla, Enrique Andrade, Michael Alexander, Amy Pearson, Samuel Willoughby, and Talen Nicolai Moe telling stories about finding a good home for the frosties, getting Cheerios for Christmas, sexing it up in Washington Park, and more…
At only $15 in advance, the affordable price of admission makes Portland Story Theater the obvious choice for entertainment in the city. With a free appetizer bar and affordable drinks from Rogue Ales and Hip Chicks Do Wine available for purchase, every show has a party atmosphere. Eat, drink, mingle–and enjoy amazing stories from community members like you! Hosted by Portland Story Theater founders, Lawrence Howard and Lynne Duddy, whose quirky, eccentric style has been compared to Burns and Allen, Stiller and Meara, and even those crazy SNL middle-school music teachers, the Culps.
The show runs about 2 hours with intermission. Admission always includes free appetizer buffet. Beverages are available for purchase when the doors open at 7 p.m. with wine $6, beer $4 (21+)
Portland Story Theater’s stories may contain “colorful’ language, sexual escapades of a questionable nature and numerous examples of extremely poor judgment, along with profound insights, deep revelations and moments of truth, triumph and transformation.
