About Us

We Tell Stories is a multi-ethnic theatre troupe...

…that educates, nurtures, bonds, and strengthens our artists and communities by Enriching the Art and Summoning the Power of Storytelling and Theatre.

Our Goals:
STORYTELLING PERFORMANCES/TRUNK SHOWS

We Tell Stories Employs a Unique Blend of Storytelling...

…and audience participatory theatre to bring world folklore, literature, legends, and mythology to joyful life. An iconic, antique trunk filled with homemade props and costumes serves as the vehicle through which sets and characters are created. The audience participates from their seats, and every story includes integral roles for audience members to play, extemporaneously, on stage. Humor and fantasy enthrall as stories of honesty, friendship, self-esteem and more enlighten all audiences.

The We Tell Stories Process of Turning Stories into Plays...

…does more than just that. It establishes an atmosphere of Trust and Support in an educational setting. It defines boundaries and a structure within which creativity can thrive. It teaches that Failure is just another way toward Success. It engrains in children and their caretakers the rules of improvisational theatre—rules that just may be good to live their lives by. And, for teachers and parents, it advocates the development of a teaching muscle we call, Making The Children Right.
