Portland Story Theater builds community through story. Our vision is to enrich, inspire, challenge and expand our community narrative, one story at a time.
What we believe:
LISTENING BUILDS CONNECTION: Be open. People are transformed by being heard. Listen openheartedly.
EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO TELL: Be heard. Honor your emotional truth. Discover your self through story.
STORY BREAKS DOWN BARRIERS: Be vulnerable. Tell your story. Authentically. Honestly. Sincerely.
WE ARE IN A REVOLUTION: Be a part of the change. Story illuminates the universal through the personal. Story awakens our consciousness. Story helps us recognize that we are one race, the human race.
Portland Story Theater is a passionate advocate for diverse narrative and our loyal listeners. We are a 501(c)3 charitable organization.
Since 2004, Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard haven't just been telling stories, they've been, in the words of Duddy, "helping people cultivate their own stories, allowing their own themes to emerge." If you've ever wanted to tell a story, enroll in one of their workshops and they'll help you write, tell and perform your story the way you want to. In addition to the Urban Teller series and holiday performances (Halloween, Valentine's Day), the Portland Story Theater is also home to the Solo Performance Festival, the only long-form personal narrative festival in the world.
