Six Stories Up in the Roaring 20’s

Six Stories Up in the Roaring 20's posterNovember 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22

Written and performed by middle school students and their mentors, Tellin’ Tales Theatre’s Six Stories Up in The Roaring 20s harks back to the time of prohibition, flappers, the jazz age and the silver screen. In this original musical, Thirteen-year-old Jack is transported to a 1920s radio show when he visits a vintage car museum during the pandemic. He becomes one of the actors in the funny and touching stories of the people who lived through the decade that roared and finds the similarities between then and now.

The result is a hilarious and often moving musical peppered with personal stories told by students and adults with cerebral palsy, ADHD, autism, Kallmann Syndrome and dwarfism, as well as their non-disabled peers. Six Stories Up in The Roaring 20s is geared toward adults and children age nine and up. The show runs approximately 70 minutes.
