Theatre is the ultimate storytelling device and we at Open Door Theatre are asking you to give us a hand and Tell Us a Story! It can be funny, poignant, dramatic, folksy, silly... The sky is the limit! We will put it into a single-person script format, and choose a reader (you will be eligible to be selected as the storyteller if you wish). Then we will perform the stories by streaming them on our website for everyone to hear!
We ask that your story can be read in 5-15 minutes and then we will decide if the story will be done as a narration, or in some other form (possibly even a duet of readers).
Just to be clear: it doesn’t have to be true, and it doesn’t have to have a “moral”. We want entertaining stories that will make people laugh, think, or cry – stories that people will appreciate by getting a chuckle or evoking a memory.
Submit your stories to us at email@example.com as a text, a doc, or even a PDF by March 15, 2021. Our plan is to perform them in mid-May of this year. We look forward to reading your stories!
