‘Bold Faced Secret’: Echo Theater Company’s
monthly storytelling series moves online starting tonight
LOS ANGELES (April 10, 2020) — What’s your secret? The Echo Theater Company moves Bold Faced Secret, its monthly storytelling series, online to Zoom starting tonight, Friday, April 10, at 7:30 p.m.
Join the Echo on Zoom for an evening of personal stories on one theme. This month’s theme: “Teacher/Student” — when you learned something, when you taught something, learning on your own, being in class, bad teachers, cool classmates.
“We started this program a year ago because storytelling creates community,” says program director Alison Martin. “Now, in our current situation, that’s become more important than ever.”
On Friday, May 8 at 7:30 p.m., the theme will be “Relativity” — relatives, relationships, family or the lack thereof, things in relation to other things, groups of people at home, at work, at play.
Friday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m.: “Blunders” — when things went wrong, when unexpected things happened, mistakes you’ve made, things you’ve tried to correct, catastrophes, how you regained footing.
Friday, July 10 at 7:30 p.m.: “Saves” — times you were saved, times when you helped others, things you save or hold onto, baseball, money, memories.
To participate in a future event, submit your 7-minute, complete story on the appropriate theme along with a 2-3 sentence bio to mailto:email@example.com. (Stories are limited to 7 minutes — please read it out loud before submitting.) Submissions must be received two weeks prior to the show date; storytellers are picked on a first come, first served basis.
