Venue: Alberta Abbey
Portland, Oregon

Advance Tickets $15

Doors 7:00 PM | Show 8:00 PM

Recommended for 21+. Attendees 17+ must be accompanied by an adult.

Every month, a group of six 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. The results are highly personal and authentic narratives. This Urban Tellers® features Allen Brown, Laur Ebone, Howard Bulick, Kateshia Pendergrass, Tom Pavlik, and Julie Rosenberg. Story by story, we bring people closer into our urban community. These programs are made possible through the generous support from our donors — people like you — who care about art and culture in our community. Donate today.

Doors open at 7 pm with improvisational jazz from Bamberger-Engel-Hines-Eave. Stories at 8 pm.

Through the generous support of the Autzen, Miller, and Kinsman foundations, we are bringing our unique brand of storytelling to underserved and rural areas throughout the state of Oregon — places that don’t usually get to enjoy this fabulous art form.

Portland Story Theater has invited some of our best storytellers to join us on tour.
