We Tell Stories is a multi-ethnic theatre troupe that educates, nurtures, bonds, and strengthens our artists and communities by enriching the art and summoning the power of storytelling and theatre.
Our goals are to inspire creativity, enhance literacy, cultivate intercultural awareness and harmony, and to spark a love for theatre and the spoken word.
Our stories are original adaptations of classic myths, legends, fairy tales, and literature representing humanity’s collective wisdom made relevant to today’s society. They elucidate the values of compassion, humor, valor, and responsibility that express the universality of the human condition. We perform in an extemporaneous style much akin to children at play. In so doing, the process of theatre is revealed, and children find their own voices. Audience members play integral roles in every story, and kids walk away saying, “I can do that!”
