Storytelling in Hyperdrive with First Person Arts
7:30 PM

Join First Person Arts before the show to learn storytelling fundamentals in a flash with popular StorySlam winner, Martha Cooney. Martha's expertise and First Person Arts' StorySlam format will guide you in crafting a 2-minute micro story sparked by a theme suggested on the spot. Perform your story for the group or just sit back and enjoy. Don't miss this opportunity to learn or hone the skills that could take you to the next Grand Slam! This workshop is for storytellers at all levels, will take place in the Montgomery Theatre and is free to all ticket holders.

This performance is part of the
Annenberg Center’s By Local Series.

The By Local Series is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Wallace Foundation.
