The Back Fence PDX story telling show returns to the Mission Theater (1624 NW Glisan) this Thursday, July 21, 2011.
Story telling show? How’s that work?:
Our Back Fence Storytelling event is the kissing cousin to San Francisco’s Porchlight Storytelling Series. It is an evening with seven people telling true, unmemorized ten-minute stories based on the month’s theme. The stories must not have been performed publicly prior to their Back Fence PDX telling.
Heather and have had a great time at all the Back Fence PDX productions we’ve been to. For one thing free cupcakes from Saint Cupcake make the rounds at intermissions. The story tellers are always courageous and their stories are often amusing, always entertaining, and sometimes gut wrenching or cringe inducing – you really don’t know what to expect!
The theme of this particular show is CAMP – a portion of the proceeds will benefit Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp For Girls. The lineup includes:
DAYVID FIGLER – Occasional Consulting Lawyer on the Nancy Grace show
KERRY COHEN – Psychotherapist + Author of Loose Girl
LUCINDA JANE HOLSCHER – 12-Year-Old from Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp for Girls
JIMMY RADOSTA – Mortified Favorite + Andy Rooney Fan
BOB McCOY – Forest Park Park Ranger + Lapsed Quaker
DALE CHUMBLEY – Realtor + 3rd Generation Vancouverite
But that’s not all!
And the MOMENT IN THE SHOW you’ve come to LOVE!!!! Our super exciting LIGHTNING ROUND!! FIVE randomly drawn audience members will have a chance to strut their narrative stuff by doing their best to tell an entire CAMP story in just ONE MINUTE!
