Tellabration! A celebration of the oral tradition.
You can bring Tellabration! to your community!
The Connecticut Storytelling Center produces Tellabration! each November by partnering with other individuals and organizations to bring storytelling to sites all over the State of Connecticut for adult, as well as family audiences.
Each concert is planned collaboratively to appeal to specific audiences. For example, if an historical society hosts a Tellabration!, the storyteller would tell stories from history or portray an historical character.
Tellabration! works as a fundraiser for the Connecticut Storytelling Center. The storytellers donate their performances. All funds raised help to support The Center's mission to strengthen the bonds of our state's culturally and economically diverse communities by building a network of storytellers and listeners.
Providing performances, workshops, and educational programming in an ever-widening circle of venues, we seek to preserve and perpetuate the ancient art of storytelling.
There are two ways that you can bring Tellabration! to your community:
Invite your friends and/or business associates to your home for a storytelling concert. We will match you with a storyteller that best suits your audience (usually 10 - 20 people for homes). You can either charge an admission or ask for donations in any amount from your guests.
Or ask your place of business, your place of worship, your community center or club to host a Tellabration!
