We kick off the 2015-16 season in September with our newest Mainstage show, Founders, Friends, & Faves, featuring some of the most talented storytellers in Portland, appearing by special invitation along with founders Lynne Duddy, Lawrence Howard, and Penny Walter along with a few very talented storytellers: Warren McPherson, Leigh Hancock, and making his Mainstage debut, John Mink.

CONNECTION: The synchronicities of life can be astounding and our personal narratives define us. But it's not all smooth sailing, is it? Sometimes it's just plain crazy. Like burning down the house. Dropping acid while riding Greyhound. Mr. Mom gone wrong. Adventure-Boy + Portland-Girl = True Love... Each storyteller, fueled by the POWER OF THEIR STORIES and the ENERGY OF THE AUDIENCE, has a mere 10 minutes to tell their story. Together, tellers and listeners, embark on a shared experience that is a potent blend of vulnerability and heart. These are stories told eye to eye, face to face, and heart to heart; stories that matter. Real. True. Stories


Our Process: Our stories are co-created in a collaborative environment. All stories are told extemporaneously — No notes! No memorized scripts!  

Listener Discretion Advised: Portland Story Theater's stories may contain explicit language, assorted escapades of a questionable nature, and various examples of extremely poor judgment, along with profound insights, deep revelations, and moments of truth, triumph, and transformation.

By attending this event, you are giving permission on behalf of yourself and/or each person in your group for Portland Story Theater, Inc. to use your image/audio clips for the sole purpose of future promotional materials without compensation or further permission.
