I will be offline beginning this afternoon and not back online until Sunday night so that I can retreat from the world with three of my storytelling colleagues. We are going to take turns giving each other feedback on our respective storytelling projects.
I, of course, will ask for help with my Lincoln piece. It is called “Of the People: Stories and Images of Abraham Lincoln.”
(By the way, it will premiere at the Indiana History Center at 4:00 on Sunday, January 18, 2009. It will be the fifteenth story commissioned for the Sharing Hoosier History Through Stories series collaboratively sponsored by Storytelling Arts of Indiana and the Indiana Historical Society. To purchase tickets, call 317-232-1882 or visit www.storytellingarts.org/store/category/Tickets.)
My next blog post, after the retreat is over, will be about the very cool, interactive “You Are There” theatre piece now running at the Indiana History Center.
After that I hope to be able to write about this coming Sunday’s afternoon performance of “Christmas Belles” at Theatre on the Square. However, I make no promises because I don’t know for sure when the storytellers’ retreat will be over on Sunday and I therefore don’t know that I will be able to make it to the theatre by 5:00. I am just going to take my chances.
You, however, should make a reservation if you’re thinking of going, because when Joe Boling wrote about this show on Indiana Auditions, he said that his first choice of show time had been sold out. Call the theatre at 317-685-TOTS (8687).
