23rd annual storytelling performance: Sparks
Story Circle at Proctors is presenting “TELLABRATION!™ 2018: Sparks” on Sunday, November 18, at 3:30 pm in the GE Theatre at Proctors. This live spoken word performance of contemporary and traditional stories for adults and teens features 9 storytellers: Fran Combs Berger of Castle-on-Hudson, Kate Dudding of Clifton Park, Eileen Egan Mack of Latham, Eliud Nieves of Ithaca, Claire Nolan and Barbara Palumbo of Albany, Nancy Marie Payne of Berne, Karen Pillsworth of Kingston, and Sandy Schuman of Albany. Tellabration!TM is a project of the National Storytelling Network https://storynet.org.
Producer Kate Dudding explains, “This year’s theme allows us to share humorous, heart-warming and/or dramatic tales of people dealing with sparks – which sometimes create new ideas, while at other times, sparks can start fires. All of our tellers can be viewed on Story Circle’s YouTube channel: YouTube.com/storybystory .”
“A goal of Story Circle at Proctors is to bring the one of oldest performing art forms, storytelling, to the attention of the public,” adds producer Alden (Joe) Doolittle. “TELLABRATION!™ is also a fund raiser: the profits from the previous twenty-two TELLABRATION!™ have underwritten over 100 storytelling events in the greater Capital Region. This year, four events were underwritten at: Kelly Adirondack Center in Niskayuna, Fort Salem Theatre in Salem, Rough Draft Bar and Books in Kingston, and a house concert in Loudonville.”
