Told #15: Family Ties

Standard

The Told Cleveland family will join together once again on May 17th at 7pm for another evening of stories at Market Garden Brewery in the Harbor/Spirits room, which we will open up at 6pm before the show.

As we all learned from Michael Corleone, Don’t ever take sides, with anyone, against the family. But there’s the family that raises you and then there’s the family you create as you break off from the proverbial tree and make your own path among the branches. Some families are built by blood while others prove that water can, indeed, be thicker. Whether it’s a silly childhood argument among siblings, an embarrassing in-law introduction, or a heartbreaking history that leaves gaps in our genealogy, expect to hear stories of all variations on familial bonds at Told #15: Family Ties.

Our featured storytellers for Told #15 are Scott Hicken and Kendra Proctor. As always, we expect to hear many stories from audience members. Jill Grunenwald will host.

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. Stories should be under 6 minutes, true, and have 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.

Told #13: Follow Your Heart

Standard

Regardless of whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day, or Singles Awareness Day, you’ll want to join us on February 10th at 7pm for our 13th evening of storytelling, which will center around the theme Follow Your Heart. After a successful trip to the east side, we will be returning to Market Garden Brewery and the Harbor/Spirits room, which we will open up at 6pm before the show.

The heart can be a fickle creature but following it can often bring you immense joy and happiness. Sometimes you gain new adventures in undiscovered cities, a lifetime of happiness nestled in the safe cocoon of adoration. But just as often, following your heart means protecting it, leaving lovers and jobs behind as you leap blindly into the great unknown. From stories of blossoming love to travels down roads best left untaken, we hope you’ll follow your own heart and join us for Told #13: Follow Your Heart.

Our featured storytellers for Told #13 are married couple Amanda Hicken and Matt Heyman. As always, we expect to hear many stories from audience members. This will also be the debut of previous Told storyteller Jill Grunenwald in her new role as co-producer and host.
