Calling Past Odyssey Storytellers

Posted By on Thu, Oct 25, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Odyssey Storytelling was voted in the latest Tucson Weekly's Best of Tucson as Best Way to be Entertained by Real Life Adventures in an Off-Broadway Setting. Anyone who has participated in a storytelling evening or been to a "performance," knows there's a lot of love for the organization that brings folks together to hear local folks tell stories — usually a theme for the evening brings it all together and brings the crowd to tears and mostly lots of laughter.

A good portion of that love is due to Odyssey's founder Penelope Starr, who retires the end of the year after 9 years leading this storytelling ship. A celebration is planned to bid Starr farewell and celebrate the organization that continues on its storytelling mission with Adam Hostetter, Sarah Smith, Roscoe Mutz and Shannon Snapp herding us cats, er, yeah story people.

A party is planned and all past storytellers are invited — everyone who has ever told a story on the Odyssey stage. The party is Saturday, Dec. 15, from 7 to 10 p.m. Want more info, send a message to Mr. Hostetter at Adam@Odysseystorytelling.com.
