13th Annual Spoken Word Festival

iCal Import
January 1, 1970 12:00 am

Celebrating the spoken word in verse, story, and song, 17 local performers will give breath to their original works in the 13th annual Spoken Word Festival April 11-12. With the theme of Luck, the performers will play with the way happenstance affects our lives.
Both new and familiar faces will grace the stage: from the fresh verse of local high school students to grandparents offering stories honed from 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 11 and 12 at 7 p.m. at the Community Mennonite Church, 328 W. Orange St., Lancaster.  Contact The Theater of the Seventh Sister for more information or to reserve tickets.

Participants include:  storytellers Tony Crocamo and  Marie Winger, poets Scott Hower, Annie Ginder, Jennifer Groff, Marla Kipp, Cameron Krulewski, Glen Mazis, Dustin Nispel, Richard Payne, Theresa Rodriguez, Peggy Rushton, Mimi Shapiro, and Beth Weaver-Kreider as well as a number of new performers, including Jeremy Barr, Jessica Flynn, and Corinne Smith.
