Next weekend, Portland Story Theater begins a new solo performance series: Singlehandedly. There are several successful storytelling events in Portland now (Ignite Portland, Backfence, Mortified, Interesting Portland, etc). We have a great community of story tellers in the NW, and Portland Story Theater's Singlehandedly will be a great addition to this movement–read the story descriptions below.
Also, we have a 3 pairs of tickets to give out as well. Just comment below and we will draw the names from the comments on Friday. If you follow us at our Portland twitter, add your twitter name for two entries. We will email the winners.
We give out free tickets every Thursday on our Portland Facebook Group. So, join it if you like free stuff. We give out festival tickets, concert tickets, and more. Last week, we had tickets for Wonder Ballroom, NW Film Center, Slabtown, Dante's, Roseland, etc…
