Do you love stories? Do you remember how it feels to curl up in bed, basking in the rise and fall of a loved one’s voice telling you a tale as you drifted off to sleep? Or perhaps you’ve been the tale-teller yourself, sharing the magic of story with your own family around the dinner table, a room full of friends, or a classroom full of wide-eyed students. Whatever your experience — even if you have no experience at all — we invite you to join in this exciting new project!The Community Storytelling Troupe’s first Storytelling Workshop will run from early April through the end of May. In the workshop, participants will study and practice the art of storytelling by exploring topics such as story selection; character development; use of gesture and voice; pacing, dynamics and audience interaction. The weekly workshop sessions will provide a great time for all as we develop a repertoire of stories for our own enjoyment and — for the more adventurous tellers — to perform at venues throughout the county. Registration is open to both youth and adults. Beginners are welcome and highly encouraged to join. If you are interested in registering for these free workshops, please contact Laurie McIntosh at (845) 676-4727. Workshop dates TBD based on which weekday evening works best for all participants. Please call soon to register – (845) 676-4727.
