Dear friends and fans of Portland Story Theater,Portland Story Theater

First, we want to thank all of you who made our 2008-09 season so successful. And what a whirlwind of a season it was: from My Favorite Pair in the fall to Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare in January to Smitten in February and Singlehandedly in the spring, there was never a dull moment for Lawrence Howard or Lynne Duddy or any of the fabulous guest artists who performed with us: Penny Walter, Will Hornyak, Brad Fortier, Rick Huddle, Concetta Antonelli, Michael Philips, Sharon Knorr, and Antonio Sacre. Thank you so much to all of you who came to see and hear us. We value your friendship and support.

What's Next? Fall Workshops!
This fall, for the first time ever, PST is going to offer a series of storytelling workshops. The first sessions will take place over three Monday evenings: September 14th: Finding the Stories We Need To Tell Today, September  21st: Characterization and Voice, and September  28th: Bones of The Story. You can register for these workshops as a package, or for individual evenings. We want to make this affordable so tuition for all three sessions is only $95; tuition for a single evening is $40. People are already reserving their places. You can too, either by calling Lynne at 503-284-2226 or by sending us an email at More details soon.

Upcoming Storytelling Season 
We have an exciting new season planned, beginning in January, 2010 when Lawrence Howard will unveil the much-anticipated sequel to Shackleton's Antarctic Nightmare. This next chapter in the Armchair Adventurer Series is tentatively titled Sole Survivor; Mawson's Mettle. Mawson led an Australian expedition to the frozen continent in 1911. Out sledging with two other men, Mawson was thrown into peril when one of the sleds -- along with the six best dogs, most of the food and equipment, and one of his companions -- was lost in a deep crevasse. After his second companion and the rest of the dogs died, Mawson struggled against freezing temperatures, 80 mile-per-hour winds, loneliness, grief, illness and starvation, pulling his one remaining sled for hundreds of miles. This is an epic story of survival and courage that will move you to the depths of your soul. January 22, 23, 29 and 30, 2010.

PST's annual Valentine's Show is always popular with our fans. And why not? Wine, chocolate, and stories of love --- we've got something very special planned for this year --- sneak peek coming soon. 

April and May will bring our Second Solo Performance Festival to the Portland Story Theater stage at Hipbone Studio. The launch of this festival, Singlehandedly, in 2009, was a huge success. We've already started lining up our performancers for 2010! Stay tuned for more information as this exciting event takes shape.
