7 Stories


7 storytellers, 7 real stories

Who hasn’t been held captive by a powerful, funny, or frightening story?  7 STORIES is a night of such storytelling – to build community, empathy, and celebrate our diversity.  

Each 7 STORIES night has a theme and storytellers sign up and are selected in advance. Real stories are spellbinding and raw. They are not a theatrical performance, but true life stories from your friends, acquaintances, or someone you have never met.  These stories are told from the heart. Each program is introduced by our host for the evening, with a short bio of each storyteller.

Attend a Storytelling Workshop with Paul Currington, December 3rd, 2023.
