Joyful Noize Productions is putting together a show celebrating the foster/adoption community and YOU are the stars. They have an open call for story tellers who want to share their first-person foster or adoption story—these can be foster/adopted youth, grown up youth, siblings, parents, and kinship folks. As a story teller, you will tell your 5-10 minute anecdote about adoption or foster care—if there is a holiday connection, that’s a bonus. You will work with professional storytellers to craft your tale and perform it. You can also write something and have it performed by a professional if you don’t want to go on stage or prefer to remain anonymous.
To become a story teller, contact Chris Lear with your name, foster/adoption connection, and contact information. You can reach him via email, [email protected], or phone, 612.207.0649. They would like to identify the storytellers by Thanksgiving.
