SATURDAY, JANUARY 4, 2020  9:30-11:30 AM.  Unscrewed Theater 4500 E. Speedway #39 Tucson AZ

Turn your next storytelling time into an entertaining, effective performance!

60 minutes chock full of practical, simple tips to create a lasting and visual impression.

Whether your story is to entertain, educate, or inspire; if it’s a folk tale, fairy tale, historical, musical or comical, a huge part of telling is YOU. Use your passion, your voice, and your presence to deliver your version of a story. Use the stage, the audience, and FEARFIGHTERS for an eye-pleasing, ear-pleasing event. There will be time for 6 attendees to get up on the stage for a “flash” story time. (3 minutes each)

This meeting is open to the public. Members: free. Guests: $5.00 donation.
