EVENING OF STORYTELLING TO BENEFIT LOCAL HISTORIC CHURCH
Members of The Territory Tellers, the statewide story arts organization, the OKC Tellers (a new Oklahoma City story guild) and Wesley United Methodist Church will combine to present an evening of the storytelling art this November. The date is Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m. A special guided tour will be available from 5:00 to 5:40 p.m. followed by the story concert at 6 p.m. Tickets will be $10 per person and available by reservation or at the door.
The internationally notable event, "Tellabration", will be celebrated in numerous locations to highlight the rich tradition and ever-new innovation of the art of oral story sharing. Although produced locally, the event is in association with the National Storytelling Network in Jonesborough, Tennessee.
The OKC Tellers is a new Oklahoma City story guild that will begin meeting at the church in late summer. Storytellers will include numerous professional talents from across Oklahoma and will include Molly Lemmons (Mustang), Salley Riffey (Oklahoma City), Kathryn Thurman (Del City) and Chester Weems (Yukon). M.C. will be author storyteller Marilyn A. Hudson (Norman).
Reserved tickets will be available for the event and will be available at the door.
Funds raised will go to help with the historic preservation of the church, which was founded in 1910. The Lovely Gothic English style stone sanctuary dates to 1928. The church sits beside the historic Route 66 as it loops through the area of the city designated "Uptown" and the “Asian District”. The church is located at NW 25th and Douglas Avenue, just north of NW 23 Street. The current pure English Gothic architecture design sanctuary and stained glass art was dedicated in 1928.
