Personal Stories 2020 - The Quarantine Edition
Group 2 Video


The Stories must go on!!

We can't yet welcome you back to the theater for a live performance, but we can share these wonderful stories with you, and hopefully raise a little money to help keep the theater alive until we can all meet again. We are creating a series of videos, each with 5 stories, that you can purchase for viewing in the safe and soically distanced location of your choice!  The videos will be released over the next few weeks, so keep checking back and follow us on social media.  You purchase your ticket, we send you an email with a link, password and instructions. The password and link are only available for a limited time - just like a live performance. We are making the tickets pay-what-you-can.  Starting at a modest $10, (we know these are tough financial times for many) and going up in stages in case you have some extra cash and want to help the theater during these incredibly difficult times. We turn 30 this August, and we are determined to be here to celebrate and be ready for 30 more!

If you have any questions email us at  Due to quarantine we are not keeping our regular business hours in the office, so email is much more efficient for reaching us.

True stories, performed by their authors - funny, personal, touching and heartwarming. We promise there are no zoom meetings, mentions of quarantine or sourdough recipes, although a very cute Irish dog does make an appearance!
