Think Chicken Soup for the Soul on stage.
A collection of storytellers from the Last Resort Players' community will share their moving and inspirational moments in an evening at the FEC entitled Based on a True Story. The stories are real and will range from humorous to dramatic or just simply once in a lifetime experiences.
“We all have a good story,” says director Jennifer Connor, “a turning point or ‘ah-ha’ moment in our lives when our perspective on life changed. Perhaps it was a time when we tapped into courage we didn’t know we had or a catalyst occurred in our life that propelled us forward and we never looked back. Those are the stories we’ll be telling.”
Scheduled to perform are Mary Jeanne Kuhar, Ken Janowski, Sally Wantz, Annie Schmidt, David Lauria and a dozen other talented storytellers. Music by local musicians Elise Arnold and Jesse Reeves will accompany the evening of tales. Jennifer Connor and Dana Rodet will host the event.
