Pros & amateurs come together to share inspiring true stories. Live music & refreshments included.
As summer heats up, our minds may turn to cool, relaxing getaways. But FAMILY VACATIONS can be a whole other matter. This month, SHINE storytellers share tales of their most memorable and life-changing family vacations. Join us for these true stories of positive change at SHINE on Thursday, July 18 at 7:30 pm at the YWCA Santa Monica/Westside.
SHINE is a monthly storytelling series featuring professionals and amateurs coming together on the third Thursday of every month to share inspiring true stories. Participants and audience members enjoy a relaxed community atmosphere, powerful and entertaining stories, refreshments, mingling, and live music. Music for June will be provided by singer/songwriter Brenda Varda.
Professional storytellers for SHINE are chosen from some of the nation’s top award-winning storytellers and writers. Amateur storytellers of all ages and walks of life also take the stage. Submissions are accepted before the event and two slots are reserved for audience members selected through a random drawing. A new theme is announced each month.
Those interested in becoming a Guest Storyteller are encouraged to visit www.StoriesBloom.com in advance for monthly theme and guidelines
SHINE is produced by Jen Bloom and Isabel Storey and presented by Santa Monica Repertory Theater, Storey Productions and the YWCA Women’s Partnership.
