Advance Tickets $15

URBAN TELLERS® share 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. You might hear stories about difficult choices, transformational life experiences, or hilarious family interactions. Whatever the story, these people’s stories are authentic, funny and fearless.

This show features a few returning tellers, including Phillip Schlachter, Lynn Fitch, and Frank Engel. They will be joined by newcomers Bruce Livingston, Samuel Routh, and Mayah Frank.

Venue: Alberta Abbey, Portland

Shackleton, The Untold Story

Shackleton, The Untold Story by Lawrence Howard, Armchair Adventurer, Portland Story Theater

Advance Tickets $15

If you think you have heard the story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s historic, ill-fated expedition to Antarctica, think again. This year, the Armchair Adventurer goes back to its roots with Shackleton, the story that started it all. For the first time ever, we’ll tell the harrowing story of the Ross Sea Party — those valiant men on the other side of the continent who gave everything they had to lay down the caches of food and fuel along the route — caches that, as it turned out, Shackleton never used.

This show will once again be part of the city-wide Fertile Ground festival of new works.
