Kiss Me, I'm Irish!
Saturday, March 14
Kiss Me, I'm Irish promises to be a wonderful evening of story, music, and rambunctious entertainment. This evening is hosted by the incomparable Penny Walter and is fueled by the legacy of Irish legend, luck, and love. The show will include real, true stories, a couple of rowdy Irish songs, some wildly inappropriate humor, a touch of traditional Irish dancing, a smattering of Gaelic, a pinch of puppetry, and more than a wee bit of malarkey. Featured performers include storytellers Maura Conlon, Lawrence Howard and Lynne Duddy; dancer, singer, and musician Brian O'hAirt; and traditional Irish music by Innisfree wiith Brenda Scearcy and Jim Loewenherz. Advance tickets are on sale now

We want to thank everyone who came to our 10th annual Valentine's show, held for the first time over at our new home, the Alberta Abbey. We had a very special evening, complete with our videographer, Aaron Hartling, proposing to his girlfriend, Paige Byrom, onstage! It was incredible. Everyone had a blast!
This March, we're going to do it again with all new stories, starting with our wildly popular Urban Tellers® and then it's our first-ever St. Paddy's celebration, Kiss Me, I'm Irish! Come and get your Irish on!
Exciting times at Portland Story Theater and you're helping to make it happen! We want to keep the momentum going. Come to the show. Bring your friends. We can't wait to see you!

The Other. There is no self without the other, but that persistent feeling of being the outsider -- of not quite connecting -- can launch us on a quest for ourselves. The real, true stories that this group of Urban Tellers has crafted are about everything from blond-haired, blue-eyed Venezuelans to finding what fills that hole in your heart. These stories explore loss, the search for identity, the pursuit of acceptance, seeking true love, and finding a reason to live, each working their way to a place of connection that eases the plight of being The Other.
Tickets are $15 in Advance | Doors 7:00 | Show 8:00
