“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are merely storytellers,” or something like that. As players, we find ourselves the center of attention at one time or another–intentionally or not. After moments of hubris, we may realize that the attention we sought only backfired, revealing our weaknesses. During times of humility, the spotlight finds reluctant players from whom the rest of us can learn. Expect calculated, accidental, and cathartic moments in the spotlight at Told #16: Center Stage.
This show is presented in partnership with the Beck Center for the Arts. The show is open to the public, and we’re excited to welcome alumni of Beck Center programs especially.
All audience members are welcome (but not required) to prepare a story on the theme and put their names in the bucket for a chance to tell their tales. These true stories should be under 6 minutes and feature yourself as a central character. Run through your story for a friend, a pet, or a Told staff member for extra practice. Check out our page on storytelling advice for more. Let us know if you want to toss your name in, though advanced noticed is not required.
