Click here for tickets to April 26 - Eric Stern | Annie RosenEric Stern, To Catch A Thief -- There’s no easy way of saying this. Before Eric Stern stole hearts and minds with his dulcet accordion playing and tenor voice, he stole groceries. And a vacuum cleaner. And a record-player. And a power drill. And some other stuff. After years of concealing these facts Stern finally comes clean with all his techniques and the sophomoric justifications he used to further his pickpocketing forays. What made him stop, what did he tell the judge, and what keeps him from doing it again, besides the baloney sandwiches they serve in jail? Eric Stern is a featured teller with Portland Story Theater. Eric Stern also leads Vagabond Opera, an original cabaret ensemble he founded in 2002.

Annie is a musician, clown, yoga teacher, and absolute lover of people. She also works with vulnerable populations, especially Portland's houseless people; using every scattered skill gleaned on her ecletic life walk to remind folks just how strong, loving, and precious they are.

Click here for tickets to April 27 - Annie La Ganga | Penny WalterPenny Walter, Con Mucho Gusto, With Pleasure -- Penny Walter has been following her art and passion being a full time puppeteer for over 11 years. But what happens when you are living the dream and you get sidetracked by family matters and life transitions? When you have to put your dreams on hold for the ones you love and become their caregiver? What gets you through the grief and when and how do you take care of yourself? Penny's  career was interrupted by her father's unexpected death and then having to care for her mother with Alzheimer's. Still trying to keep her puppet dreams alive during this time of change was hugely challenging and exhausting, and then the phone rang... Penny received an invitation to travel and perform for a month in Colombia. She said YES and the pleasure was all hers.
Click here for tickets to April 27 - Annie La Ganga | Penny WalterSpecial Guest Artist-in-Residence, Annie La Ganga, The Major Arcana -- Her story, The Major Arcana, is the story of Annie La Ganga's long and sometimes troubling relationship with tarot cards. While the symbology of the tarot has served her well as a guide to spiritual, emotional, and intellectual growth, it has also been an aggravating and terrifying companion empowering the most fearful and annoying aspects of her personality. Her story is part comic meditation on magical thinking, mental illness, and sordid spiritual seeking, and part earnest investigation into the fundamental and ridiculous mysteries of being.
Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to hear storytelling like you've never heard it before!
May the narrative be with you,
Lynne, Lawrence, and Penny
