TELLABRATION! 2017

Celebrating the art of spoken storytelling.

Saturday November 18, 2017 - 7:00 p.m.

Locally, TELLABRATION brings together storytellers from southeast Wisconsin to delight, captivate and mesmerize audiences with their tales.

This is the 27th Milwaukee area TELLABRATION which had its beginnings in Connecticut in 1988.
The event has grown into one of the most impressive collective events in the history of the modern storytelling revival.

For people who have never experienced a traditional storytelling performance
and those who are loyal fans of tales well told, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

This year’s tellers are…

Article in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Cue Section

‘TELLABRATION’ set at Mount Mary College
By Jackie Loohauis-Bennett of the Journal Sentinel Nov. 11, 2012

For more than 25 years, Milwaukee Area Story Tellers have told stories by heart, for the heart.

On Saturday, the custom continues when presenters join the day’s international “TELLABRATION” of oral storytelling. Starting at 7 p.m. at Mount Mary College, 2900 N. Menomonee River Parkway, local and state presenters will perform stories for grown-ups on topics from nature tales to “a fractured fairy tale of Cinderella,” says Jean-Andrew Dickmann, M.A.S.T. spokeswoman.

So leave the tech toys at home. In a tradition that goes back to when humans first gathered around campfires to spin yarns, individual tale tellers (and one couple telling a tale in tandem) will get the audience “lost in the imagination of it all,” Dickmann says.
