Connect to the heart and soul of Portland!

Urban Tellers® is a shared experience that is a potent blend of vulnerability and heart.

Featuring storytellers



LIVE JAZZ when the doors open by Tonight’s Special led by Aaron Mattison

The band is HOT! Aaron Mattison (sax) Laurent Nickel (bass) Roger Paulson (piano) Alan Dragon (drums) Bryant Byers (trombone | vocals)

The stories that people tell at Urban Tellers® are personal narratives shaped by the truth and perspective of the present moment.

Every month, a group of people come together as Urban Tellers® to stand and deliver the real, true stories that they have discovered, crafted, and honed in Portland Story Theater’s Art of Personal Narrative workshop.

The results are highly personal and authentic narratives, told eye to eye, face to face, and heart to heart. You might hear stories about difficult choices, transformational life experiences, or hilarious family interactions. You can expect the results to be authentic, funny and honest.

Produced by Portland Story Theater

Wheelchair accessible. On street parking.

Launched in 2004, Portland Story Theater is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to making the narrative arts an integral part of Portland’s rich cultural identity and is committed to bringing an authentic story and theater experience to inspire, challenge and expand a sense of community in Portland’s urban environment.
