What’s Your Story?
Tellin’ Tales Theatre uses the power of storytelling to bridge the gap between people with and without disabilities. Enriching and improving the lives of people is a goal we share so we are reaching out to you with information about two upcoming programs and productions.
“Metamorphosis” – is an insightful and sometime hilarious show about personal transformations. It will run for two weekends March 31 through April 9, at Prop Thtr, 3502 N. Elston Ave. Three solo performers with and without disabilities— Steve Glickman, Judi Lee Goshen and Tekki Lomnicki—reveal how they each broke out of difficult situations with courage and humor. Each night they will be joined by a different “caterpillar” from Chicago’s thriving Live Lit community who will read his or her story—ranging from an idealistic husband and father who woke up one day to understand the need for political activism, to a disabled woman who used a water slide dare to propel her into moving to Chicago. All tickets are available at tellintales.org. All venues are always fully accessible and we offer sign language interpretation and audio description on Saturday, April 8.
EveryBody has a Story Workshop – This six-week class is for anyone with a disability who wants to learn how to write, present and perform in a nurturing workshop environment. From the written word to the stage, your story will be shared as part of the production DIVERCITY before an appreciative audience during the weekend of June 16,17 & 18 at the Prop Thtr.
Tellin’ Tales offers these unique opportunities for the disability community – and we ask for your help to build awareness so more people can participate and experience our transformative programs.
