Every month, a group ordinary 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 workshops.

Together, tellers and listeners embark on a shared experience that is a potent blend of vulnerability and heart.

    I would love to see this. I grew up in Portland. Mostly everyone I meet is a transplant from another city. I sometimes feel no longer connected to the city I grew up in.
    At age 68, would just love to hear from the people who make Portland unique,old,young,native, or transplants

    Thank you. Such a nice offer.!!

      Hi Patricia,

      Great to hear from you. Yes, it’s a multi-generational experience with all different kinds of people who call Portland home.

      Good luck.

    OOOOOOH, this sounds like The Moth, I’m very interested to hear personal stories and I love The Old Church’s ambiance.

      Dear Alexis, Yes… very much like The Moth but Portland style… organic and for-real. Good luck!

    Stories offered from the heart, unafraid and transformational.

    We leave the performance changed.

    This is what Portland Story Theater does best.
