By performing stories, our audience gets an opportunity to understand what someone else's life is like, and to "walk in their shoes." Our shows are entertaining, thought-provoking and heart-felt.
Stories on Stage is as engaging and thought-provoking as any form of theatre in Denver. A great entertainment value.
The first one I attended hooked me because it was as if I was back in my childhood being read a bedtime story except that the audience are hearing grown-up stories that fascinate, amuse and entertain. It was easy to put all my worldly struggles out of my mind as the actor pulled the audience into the story, the characters, the setting.
We love collaborating with Stories on Stage. Reading stories aloud is surprisingly challenging and having the opportunity to work outside of our "norm" helps to keep things fresh.

Stories on Stage enacts a kind of transformative magic with every performance - their world-class actors read stories to be collectively appreciated by an auditorium full of people.The conversation becomes audible, visual, and tactile, instead of happening between one writer's pen and one reader's silent imagination. It's inspiration on a grand scale.

All it took was one visit to Stories on Stage and I was hooked. It gave me such a thrill then, to be asked to be a reader. I know what it's like to be out there in the dark and have really fine literature land beautifully on the ear and create visionary feasts for the mind. As a reader it gives me a chance to paint the picture and enjoy the ride right along with the audience.

I think storytelling and story hearing must be among the oldest and deepest of human activities.There is nothing better than the communion of the story teller and their audience. But this is made all the sweeter when the stories are some of the best writing in the language which is always the case at Stories on Stage.
