“Mixed Bag,” the next Greenwich Historical Society Story Barn performance, takes place Friday, February 22, 2013.
The performance will be the culmination of a workshop led by performer and comedienne Bonnie Levison where would-be raconteurs study how to craft and deliver a compelling yarn based on personal experience. During the workshop leading up to their Story Barn performance, participants learn about the principals of storytelling and the development of ideas, then they craft the arc of their stories and fine-tune their presentation skills for this final performance.
The theme for “Mixed Bag,” will showcase the diversity of the workshop performers and their stories. According to emcee and coach Levison, “The old maxim that everyone has a great story to tell has never held truer than in our own community. You’ll be touched, surprised and thoroughly entertained.”
Coach and program emcee Bonnie Levison has been performing standup comedy and storytelling on a wide variety of stages for many years. She is a storytelling instructor for MothShop, the community and corporate education program for The Moth, a nonprofit organization based in New York City dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. She also founded the Nantucket Comedy Festival.
