Support Tellin’ Tales Theatre

“My experience with Tellin’ Tales and Tekki have made me a better writer, actor, director, teacher…a better human!” Cast in the very first production of Six Stories Up in 1998, Simone LaPierre went on to participate in just about every aspect of Tellin’ Tales possible. As she matured through the teen years, she embraced the mission of Tellin’ Tales and focused on how she could impact societal changes.

As you can see with Simone, and so many others, Tellin’ Tales Theatre has a long reach into the future. We as a community are stronger, closer knit and challenged to go beyond. You can support this mission with your time as a volunteer or ambassador, with a financial gift or through in-kind contributions. Please consider making a gift to Tellin’ Tales now.  85% of all donations go directly to the mission.
