Guest Event: The Tales of Our Lives Story Slam | Northern Sky Theater

The Tales of Our Lives Story Slam

Saturday, April 20, 2024

Join us for the 11th annual production of “The Tales of Our Lives – A Story Slam” presented by the Women’s Fund of Door County in collaboration with Northern Sky Theater. As in previous years, five storytellers will take the stage to share their stories. Accompanied by the music of local blues artist Cathy Grier, each tale will revolve around a unique experience, relationship or life lesson that left a profound mark on the speaker.

This year’s storytellers include:

  • Katie Dahl, who will reflect on her adolescence and the grief she holds onto after learning to accept her feeling.
  • Allison Haus, who will discuss how the course of her life changed while she was working on her post-doctorate in France.
  • Mel Ripp, who will take to the stage for the third time to share a journal excerpt from when she was in graduate school at 22 years old.
  • Georgina Saunderson Hatch, whose story begins with her childhood in Jamaica and continues to her present-day experiences as a mother of two children with special needs.
  • Jewel Peterson Ouradnik, who will talk about growing up on her family’s resort in Rowley’s Bay, which she and her husband owned until the devastating 2023 fire.

Performance begins at 7:00pm followed by a reception.
Tickets are $30 each with reserved seating. There will be no intermission.
