Portland Story Theater's fourth-annual New Works Solo Festival, Singlehandedly, continues this weekend. Real. True. Stories. It’s a rare opportunity, in this over-produced landscape we live in, to sit in a small theater and listen to a story float between you and the person on stage. This is the only festival in the country that delivers feature-length personal stories. World Premieres. Every night is different! You only get to hear these stories once, so don't miss out.
Friday, May 4
Eric Stern shares the story of the man who taught him about opera, and drinking; the man who trained his voice and shaped his artistic life in Plaid Shirt Maestro. Eric founded Vagabond Opera in 2002.
Penny Walter paints a picture of her early idyllic childhood, and how it has prepared her for the most demanding performance of her life in Roots and Wings. Penny is celebrating her 10th anniversary as a professional puppeteer and storyteller.
Saturday, May 5
Lynne Duddy tells the story of growing up in N-NE Portland in the 60s and 70s as the world changed around her on both the macro and the micro level in Wabi-Sabi White Girl. Lynne is the co-founder of Portland Story Theater.
Michele Carlo takes you on a journey from her New York experience, growing up Puerto Rican, to semi-quasi sorta’ kinda’ fair-to-middling respectable success as a writer and a performer. This is the world premiere solo show of her book and signed copies of Fish Out Of Agua will be available for $15 at the show.
Singlehandedly is funded in part by a generous project grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council. Guarantee your seats by buying your tickets online. Check out the entire lineup of artists on the festival page.
