True stories about people's most unusual experiences.

To kick off the new year, SHINE goes “Outside the Box.” Storytellers will share their most unusual true experiences—and what they learned from them.

Stories include a man's encounter with a mysterious tour guide in Europe; what one woman did when no one showed up for her birthday party; and how a man came to terms with his inner woman.

SHINE is a monthly storytelling series featuring professionals and amateurs coming together to share inspiring true stories. Participants and audience members enjoy a relaxed community atmosphere, powerful and entertaining stories, refreshments, mingling, and live music.

Live music for January will be provided by singer/songwriter Brenda Varda. An award-winning playwright, multidisciplinary artist, and teacher, Brenda has had numerous works produced in Los Angeles both as playwright and composer/lyricist.

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.

Those interested in becoming a Guest Storyteller are encouraged to visit www.StoriesBloom.com in advance for monthly theme and guidelines

SHINE is produced this month by Jen Bloom, Sara Mayer, and Isabel Storey and presented by Santa Monica Repertory Theater, Storey Productions and the YWCA Women’s Partnership.
