Odyssey Storytelling- Kale CANCELLED

We’ve had our own reversal of fortune. A prudent cancellation of the April 2 show for Odyssey Storytelling means Kale will have to surface again at a later date.  NO SHOW THURSDAY, APRIL 2,  7:00-9:00 PM.

NO SHOW THURSDAY APRIL 2

Every month, six people are invited to tell ten-minute personal stories on a theme to a live audience. The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller. In April, IT WAS TO BE KALE! Kale seems to be an unusual theme, but it’s for real. WHEN KALE RETURNS, I’LL BE A TELLER!
