Urban Tellers®

Friday, June 2
Fremont Theater, 2393 NE Fremont Street

The June 2nd show is Portland Story Theater’s Season Finale! The 2016-2017 season was our first at the Fremont Theater and it’s been spectacular!

This is our last show of season and we’re bringing back some of the most compelling stories that we heard on the Portland Story Theater stage. Of course, there are more wonderful stories but here are the ones you will be able to enjoy live and in person once again at this show:

Kate RistauSometimes Things Don’t Go As Planned, Sukita CrimmelCourage for Beauty, Daniel LaForceThe Healing, Stefanie BrownThis is Not My Cancer Story, Lynn FitchFrom Folly to Forgiveness and Frank EngelThe Existential Adventures of San Franciso Blackie.

Doors open at 7pm with music by The Orange Whips. Stories at 8 pm.

We will be returning (yay! WooHoo!) to the Fremont Theater next season but we want to send you off with something really special. Don’t miss this one! The beautiful Fremont Theater is an intimate space and these shows have been selling out days in advance. Please don’t delay! Get your tickets before they’re gone.
