“I feel that Six Stories Up has had a huge impact on Tiernan’s childhood. He tried one or two programs before but never went back after the first week because he felt like he didn’t fit in. He now calls himself an actor and feels that the program has shown him there’s nothing he can’t do.” —Daphne Tajalli

As you can see with Tiernan, and so many others, Tellin’ Tales Theatre’s programs helps mold the futures of our participants. You can support our mission with your time as a volunteer or ambassador, with a financial gift or through in-kind contributions.
