The Power of Storytelling
Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today. -- Robert McKee
Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Want to make a point or raise an issue? Tell a story. -- Janet Litherland
After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.
-- Philip Pullman
Every great love starts with a great story... -- Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
The purpose of a storyteller is not to tell you how to think, but to give you questions to think upon.
-- Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings
What story do you have to share?
What memorable experience has changed your life? Storytelling evokes passion, emotions, understanding and compassion. Storytelling can unite even those of us who are most divided by our values, beliefs and principles.
Each of us takes something different from the stories we hear. Every person who hears a story feels connected to the people, places and events in the stories being told. And every one of us longs to be part of the stories we hear.
This Friday evening, you have the chance to be moved by storytelling. You have the chance to hear stories from your neighbors and friends. You have the opportunity to share your own story that is living inside of you.
Tell-A-Bration, an international storytelling event takes place Friday, November 20 at 7:30 pm at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts. Come out and enjoy the stories of our community. Tickets are just $5. Doors open at 6:30 pm with international exchange students sharing their stories in the TCA lobby.
Don’t just stand there … take a seat!
Do you enjoy the theater?
Do you enjoy live entertainment?
Are you proud to have Tecumseh Center for the Arts in your community?
If you said yes to any of these then don’t just stand there! Show your support of Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA) by taking a seat in the theater. During the 30 days of November you can have an auditorium seat engraved with your name or the name of a loved one for just $100 (over half off the original rate).
With the holidays coming, we are all searching to find the perfect present for our loved ones. Consider buying them a gift that will last and have their name engraved on one of our seats. Our Take A Seat campaign runs all year round and typically costs $250. But this month, we want to show our thanks and our appreciation to our patrons by giving them the chance to support the TCA for just $100.
So "Take Your Seat" and be part of the TCA community.
