Speak Up is an evening of true stories centered on a common theme,
told by storytellers chosen for their skill and expertise. This
remarkable event celebrates the craft of live storytelling.
The theme of the show is "Game Change." All stories are 5-10 minutes
long. Storytellers are required to work on their stories with
Matthew and Elysha Dicks prior to the show.
Speak Up was founded by author, teacher, and 16-time Moth StorySLAM
and GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks and his wife Elysha Dicks. Each
Speak Up event features an ever-changing multitude of talented,
regional storytellers who perform onstage without notes. Elysha is
Speak Up's host and Matthew tells a story at every show.
The couple's goal for Speak Up is to bring the craft of live
storytelling to the greater Hartford area while entertaining audiences
with stories about the human condition. They have partnered
with us this year at the 34th Annual Connecticut Storytelling Festival and
will produce Speak Up for our Saturday night program.
Meet the Performers HERE.
