15th Annual Spoken Word Speaks Truth

iCal Import
Start:
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 15th annual Spoken Word Play April 29. With the theme of Truth, the performers will play with the ideas of personal and universal truths.
Both new and familiar faces will grace the stage: from the fresh verse of young performers to grandparents offering stories honed from lifetime of wisdom and wit.
Unlike any other event in our region, the Spoken Word Play 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 Play performance will be held April 29 at 7:30 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 Mimi Sharpiro, Mary Alice Bitts-Jackson, Scott Hower, Peggy Rushton, John Bingham, Kate Millay, Marla Kipp, Joe Devoy, Brianna Crowley, Annie Ginder, Glen Mazis, Noah Ayala, Alexandra Papoutsis, Amanda Reitz, and Beth Weaver-Kreider.
