Racing to the Finish Line!

 

We Tell Stories only needs to raise $2,500 to fully fund our theatre/
literacy residency program, Open Court Intensive, for this school year.
 
 
Open Court Intensive provides 4 low-income elementary schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District with professional storytelling performances and 80 student workshops per school.
 
Students gain self-confidence, learn to focus, deepen their understanding of stories they are studying, and have fun.
 
 
San Fernando Elementary School 3rd graders
perform, "A Story, A Story" for their peers.
 
 
With funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, Employees Community Fund of Boeing, City of Los Angeles Dept of Cultural Affairs,  Sidney Stern Memorial Trust, and generous donors like you we have almost reached our funding goal....almost.

Any amount you donate will be greatly appreciated.

The Ring is Here!
 
 
The Rhine's Gold
 
premieres at
the Los Angeles Public Library in April
 
What is the “ring”? Why does everyone want it? 
 
We Tell Stories answers these questions and more in a 45-minute, family-friendly storytelling production, The Rhine’s Gold.  Created for the Los Angeles Public Library, The Rhine’s Gold, is based on Richard Wagner’s opera, Das Rhinegold, and features a puppet dwarf, charming costumes transformed from ordinary objects, and orchestral experts from the opera. 
 
Meet gods, dwarves, giants, and Rhinemaidens in this Wagnerian romp that includes plenty of audience participation.  The Rhine’s Gold is ideal for children ages 5 to 12 and their families.
