Personal Stories for the Stage from Porchlight
Wednesdays, August 6, 13 20 & 27, 2008
6 -9 pm
$180 ($170 for Intersection members)

With a firm belief that absolutely everyone has stories to tell, curators Arline Klatte and Beth Lisick offer their first ever storytelling class from the Porchlight Storytelling Series, San Francisco’s premier showcase for first person stories. This workshop will emphasize mining your life for material and executing a well-crafted (yet not overly theatrical) version for the stage. The workshop is open to people of all skill levels and backgrounds who are interested in crafting their personal stores for the stage. The final class includes a performance for an invited audience.

Arline Klatte is a native San Franciscan and former reporter for the Moscow Times. She received her postgraduate degree in journalism from Columbia University and has worked as an editor for SF Gate and CBS Marketwatch. In 2002, she co-founded the Porchlight Storytelling series and is currently a top selling agent with real estate broker TRI Coldwell Banker.

Beth Lisick is the author of four books, including the New York Times bestseller Everybody Into the Pool and the national bestseller Helping Me Help Myself. She has also made a few films, done some acting, and had a band, but one of her favorite projects is Porchlight. Her comedic stage show with Tara Jepsen, Getting In On The Ground Floor and Staying There, premieres this summer at the Center for Sex and Culture.
