Dear Storylovers and Friends of Portland Story Theater,

Our new season is about to launch! It's been a while and we've missed you. We're looking forward to seeing you soon.

Portland Story Theater is so proud to bring you another season of Real. True. Stories. We love creating this unique form of theater that celebrates the shared human experience, up close and personal. Your support is amazing and humbling. We are grateful for you, and for this work.

Once again, we'll be at our intimate black box performance space, Hipbone Studio, run by one of our favorite people, Jeff Burke. Videographer, Aaron Hartling, captures all of our shows and posts them on our YouTube channel. Audiographer, Josh Ellyson, is supporting us as we build our podcast library on our SoundCloud channel. Photographers Mike Bodine and Scott Bump are sharing the photo work between the two of them.

Urban Tellers gives audiences the chance to witness the unfolding artistic expression of ordinary people -- our neighbors, coworkers, people who live in our community -- people who have crafted their personal narratives in our monthly workshops. 

Our season opens with a special show, the Urban Tellers  InvitationalEvery Invitational is a non-competitive opportunity for people who have worked with Portland Story Theater previously to expand their story crafting skills. We've invited these fine tellers: Jack Schwab, Angela Hahn, Matt Haynes, Beth Rogers, Maura Conlon-McIver, and Aaron Hartling

Bridges is our new series modeled aftBridges, a social justice series on race relationser our popular Urban Tellers but with a focus on social justice. This first season, the theme is race relations. Bridges will bring together people from different racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds to share their personal narratives, closing the gap between "us" and "them" by helping people recognize that there is no "them," only "us.”  We recognize that life is not completely rosy in the Rose City around the topic of race. Maybe you do, too. Our art has shown us that stories can build bridges. Be a part of this important new series. We want people like you, who have the courage to speak up and share their personal stories. Maybe you would like to be invited to tell your story? Find out how

Feature-Length Solo Shows
  November 22 and 23, 2013
  April 25 and 26, 2014
Feature-Length Solo ShowsAfter five years, our Solo Series has grown out of the Singlehandedly Festival — in which an artist experiences our collaborative process as both creator and performer of a feature-length solo show. The fall show features Jeff Burke and the spring show features Amanda Starr. Each of these shows will also present the work of a visiting artist who is part of Portland Story Theater's Artist-in-Residence Program.

You'll get to see artists who have worked with us extensively deliver compelling personal narratives that are fresh, spontaneous, and entertaining.
