It’s kind of like stage fright, but a lot more fun.

7 storytellers will tell 7 stories, each 7 minutes.

Alpine Playhouse and McCall Arts and Humanities Council will be hosting three Stage Flight events annually in February, March and April.

Stories Start at 7pm.

Your unique stories take audiences on a personal and shared flight of fancy—seven minutes at a time! The premise is simple (and highly entertaining): Seven storytellers have seven minutes to regale a live audience with a personal story centered on a common theme.
