There are few things more powerful than a story. And the spirit is embodied by 2 groups who believe in the power of bringing people together through narrative: Raconteur Denver and Playback Theatre West.
Bring your stories to the microphone along with Raconteur Denver favorites, Pete Bellande, Kris Drickey and Timmi Lassley in a night of storytelling on the theme of SPIRIT. Then watch as Playback Theatre West Performers take your tales to the next level by re-creating them on the spot.
