Urban Tellers® at the Dallas StoryFest

Portland Story Theater Urban Tellers at the Dallas StoryFestPORTLAND, OR – September 6, 2019 – Urban Tellers® is a leader in the phenomenon that we’ve seen all around the country: real, true stories told on stage in front of a live audience. For more than 15 years, Portland Story Theater has been bringing storytelling for adults to an ever-expanding audience, and this month we have the chance to bring our unique brand of true, personal narrative down to The Dallas Storytelling Festival! This show includes Portland Story Theater founders Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard, along with perennial audience favorites Penny Walter, Warren McPherson and Frank Engel. The show is fun, fast-paced and filled with personal stories that bring the culture of community to life. This show is worlds away from a strait-laced book reading. No notes. No memorization. Just the story, the teller, and you! The space at The Majestic, just two doors down from the Public Library in Dallas, Oregon, is intimate and relaxed. Urban Tellers® On The Road runs about two hours, including intermission, and takes place on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Stories start at 7 pm.

Urban Tellers® On The Road
Portland Story Theater co-founders Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard will perform with Urban Tellers® Penny Walter, Warren McPherson, and Frank Engel. The stories are suggested for an adult audience and will touch on various topics such as camping with three-year olds and smelly dogs; doing everything you teach your students not to do; receiving a message of forgiveness from someone you bullied in middle school more than 60 years ago, saying goodbye to your favorite uncle, and almost drowning in a cheap scuba mask.
