About this class: It’s not just what story you tell, but how you tell it. The Asolo Rep StoryLab is an introduction to the art of personal storytelling. In this dynamic class, you will construct a story based in your own experience, presenting that story confidently to others. Storytellers work with Asolo Rep Teaching Artists to develop, rehearse, and share these stories in a relaxed, collaborative environment. Everyone has a story to tell, what’s yours? 

This class requires no prior experience in performance or storytelling. 

 Registration available soon!
