What do a Baptist minister, teacher, country lawyer, native Vermonter, state senator, Episcopal priest, and a high school senior have in common? They all have what it takes to stand up and tell a true story in front of a live audience--without notes--in the second annual True Tales event in Proctorsville.
On Sunday March 22, these seven plucky yarn spinners will present a Vermont version of Moth Radio Hour, a popular NPR program that has spawned similar events throughout the country.
This year’s storytelling event will benefit Gethsemane Church, which has hosted the Raise the Roof Concert Series in its acoustically perfect space for the last three winters. To say thank you and replenish the church’s heating fuel in this bone-chilling winter, True Tales will donate all proceeds from the door to the little church with a big heart---and the audience will bask in the warmth of a late winter afternoon of well told stories.
Last year’s event included tales of wildlife adventure, childhood memory, strange coincidence and prison hijinks. This year the lineup will be just as varied but guaranteed to be magical.
True Tales will begin at 4:00 p.m. at Gethsemane Church on Depot St. in Proctorsville. Admission is $10.00 at the door.
