Fish Tales: REDO

Real Stories Told Live* (*well, recorded live) at Gloucester Stage

A local storytelling program developed by the Gloucester Writers Center (GWC), because at heart every writer is a storyteller. In fact, we are all storytellers. Each day we tell stories about where we’ve been, what we’ve seen, and who we’ve talked to – all with additional color and flare, seriousness and humor, love and affection.

Fish Tales has grown from a cozy storytelling evening at the GWC to a happening weekend night event every other month, showcasing real people, telling true stories from the heart. Our storytellers are vulnerable, ready to share, funny and honest, and our enthusiastic audience reminds us that it is a joy and privilege to sit and listen to someone else’s life for a while.

Fishtales is an evening where our community comes together to share real life funny and heartwarming stories. Although we can’t be together, we can still enjoy a night of storytelling.

The storyteller line-up includes Eric Baumeister, Casey Breton, Peggy Lyman, Mari Martin, Brian Orr and many more!!!

Streaming Tickets are $9 at www.gloucesterstage.comRedo Poster jpeg
