Tell Us Something brings live storytelling back to Helena on May 9th. Eight storytellers will share their true personal story (without notes) on the theme “Getting Away With It.”
Tell Us Something awakens imagination, empowers storytellers and connects the community through the transformative power of personal storytelling. It is a celebration of each other, our stories, and how we move through the world together. All of the stories at Tell Us Something are true.
In this episode you’ll hear stories about a young man and his nefarious band of misfits smuggling weed across the Canadian border, then, join a young queer couple on a road trip in the south, rent a car in Ireland without the proper insurance and finally, fall in love with a dubious ranch hand in Dillon, Montana.
Stories about a young woman who drops acid with her boyfriend before embarking on a hitchhiking trip to San Francisco, we accompany a mailman on his daily route in Helena, Montana, go for a ride in a new Jeep that has some curious vanity plates and avoid getting paint on our Sunday clothes as we complete a chore before church.
You have 3-minutes to record your story pitch at 406-203-4683. Preference is given to people who have never shared a story at Tell Us Something. We are also striving to be more inclusive of our friends in the BIPOC community and welcome your stories.
“YESSSSSS!!!! What an amazing experience! What a group of unbelievably unique and diverse storytellers! I was floored. I believe so strongly in the power of storytelling- it’s a way to tether ourselves to this earth and say, ‘Yes! I claim this life that I’ve lived!'”
–Karla Theilen, Tell Us Something storyteller alumni
