The Storytellers of San Diego are once again preparing for their popular annual "Tellabration" concert, held annually in Ocean Beach. But, like so many other local events, the storytellers are going virtual this year.
Local residents can "Zoom" into the 90-minute event on Nov. 14 from 4-5:30 p.m. and this year the event will be free for all who wish to be enthralled by the eight scheduled presenters.
This year's theme is "Living Peace," and all tales will revolve around this tranquil topic. The event is recommended for ages 12 and up.
Members of the group pride themselves in building a repertoire of engrossing and varied stories they tell in a way to mesmerize their audience, often using costumes, differing voices, and small props as they weave their oral journeys.
The event is created and emceed by Fred Laskowski and Mindy Donner and is part of an annual worldwide celebration of storytelling.
Laskowski will be joined on the event stage by Patti Christensen and James Nelson-Lucas, Jim Dieckmann, Arlyn Hackett, Marilyn McPhie, Sarah Saulter, and the Twisted Heart Puppetworks of Tania Yager.
The Zoom meeting ID and Passcode can be found at storytellersofsandiego.org. For further information or questions, call Laskowski at 619-813-2416 or Donner at 619-850-2130.
