Celebrating the spoken word in verse, story, and song, 19 local performers will give breath to their original works at The Ware Center in the 11th annual Spoken Word Festival April 6-7.
Both new and familiar faces will grace the stage at 42. N. Prince St., Lancaster: from local high school and college students, to grandparents offering a lifetime of wisdom and wit.
Unlike any other event in our region, the Spoken Word Festival is an event meant to enlighten and excite audiences as static pieces of writing come physically alive on the stage, revealing the power of words to delight, inspire, and transform.
This Theater of the Seventh Sister annual event aims to build a community of artists whose works juxtapose and have conversations with each other in the shared public space of the stage.

The Spoken Word Festival performance times are April 6 at 8 p.m. and April 7 at 2:30 p.m. at The Ware Center. Tickets are $10. Contact The Ware Center at 717-871-2308 or for more information or to reserve tickets.

Participants include: Lancaster Poet Laureate Chris Longenecker, storyteller Marie Winger,
woodworker Scott Hower, philosophy professor Glen Mazis, poets Annie Ginder, Marla Kipp, and Daniella Laudadio, therapist Judith Kennedy, journalist Daina Savage, as well as a number of new performers, including Lilah Thompson, Richard Payne, Brighid Flynn, Herb Landis, William Ryan, Jennifer Groff, Peggy Rushton, Marilyn Morrison, and high school students, Cameron Krulewski and Liam Edmunds.
