Come Into My Parlour – Tales for the Telling
Join us for an afternoon of ghost stories in a very special presentation by Marva K. Blackmore and Lee Porteous. It was the tradition in Victorian times to tell ghost stories in the parlour between Christmas and New Years. Lee and Marva have put together an intriguing afternoon of stories to share with you. Can you think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon after Christmas and before the New Year celebrations?

Slice of Life – Oh, No! Now What?
Interpret the theme as you will. The storytellers will be telling us about a time when something happened and they had to make a decision or make a change or something happened to change their lives.
About Slice of Life, Real People, Real Stories:
The tellers have all pitched their story ideas and have been selected to tell stories based on a theme, and all tellers have attended a rehearsal prior to the event. The stories will be no longer than 10 minutes, hence the name, “SLICE OF LIFE”.
