Next show Monday May 16th! **ONLINE** — Toronto International Storytelling Festival!

5 May

Tickets PWYC from https://artery.is/showcases/may2022

Heyyyyyy 6th wave! Toronto’s biggest storytelling show is back again — online and into your living room! This is a “best of” from far away guests who told stories at the online shows (with a brand new story thrown in to mix things up). In partnership with The Toronto International Storytelling Festival!

**ASL Interpretation provided**

Five storytellers will take you to places and live experiences you never thought possible (especially now!) and make you feel connected to other humans in a way that feels more essential now than ever.

This show will happen both on Zoom and you’ll need to get a ticket here:
https://artery.is/showcases/may2022

These are PWYC with a suggested donation of $15CAD (but really, pay what you *can) with proceeds being split between the performers, producers and with Anduhyaun, a shelter and housing program in Toronto that supports Indigenous women and children.

DETAILS:

Mon May 16th @ 7:30pm—9pm ET / 4.30–6pm PT
On Zoom — info on how to join sent when you get a ticket.

Storytellers:
Jeff Harry (Oakland, CA)
Olwen Wilson (Waterloo, ON)
Khan Ramkeesoon (Long Beach, CA)
Nick North (Salt Spring Island, BC)
And very special guest, The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Official Storyteller, Charlotte Blake Alston (Philadelphia, PA)


Hosted by me, Marsha from YesYesMarsha.com

ASL Interpretation will be provided!

If this show has taught me anything over the last 9 years it’s that, in BANANAS times when everything feels uncertain and weird and sometimes terrifying, listening to stories together makes everything feel better. The plan is to ask you to assemble at 7:25ish ET. If you can’t make it for the start of the show, you’ll be let onto the call as soon as the current storyteller has finished. As much as possible, it would be amazing if you can stay for the whole thing — and the stories I’ve lined up mean you’ll be glad you did.

Again, if you’d like to be on the Zoom call, please get a ticket here (PWYC): https://artery.is/showcases/may2022

SEE YOU ON Mon May 16th!

Spread the word!

TICKETS : https://artery.is/showcases/jan2022

Anyone in Ontario — and most outside — will be un-shocked to hear that we had to move the Jan 24th show online. The exciting part about this is that I’ve been able to pull in some INCREDIBLE storytellers who wouldn’t be able to make it in person.

The online shows are a different kind of magic. Perhaps foolishly, I’m hoping this is our last online show, at least for a while, so come along! Get your Pay What You Can tickets here. Show details:

True Stories (Told Live) Toronto ONLINE Mon Jan 24th @ 7:30pm—9:30pm ET

Kerra Bolton

and a story and a song from our musical guest Zachary Colangelo
