TELLABRATION!™ is a night of storytelling celebrated worldwide on or about the third Saturday in November. The event is a trademark of the National Storytelling Network. Guilds and storytelling enthusiasts all around the globe share their storytelling talents in concerts held in cities and towns to celebrate the art of storytelling.
Locally, TELLABRATION!™ brings together each area’s most celebrated storytellers, to delight, captivate, and mesmerize audiences with their stories. It creates a network of storytelling enthusiasts bonded together in spirit.
ROMP has been sponsoring a Tellabration each year since the museum began in 2012. For our 10th anniversary Tellabration, we will feature the stories and poetry of ROMP Director Shaun Perkins. Perkins has been a storyteller for decades and a poet for decades and decades. She has performed in a one-woman show POEM LIFE and at various readings and storytelling events across the region.
The event will include impromptu poems Shaun will create for audience members. Perkins is the long-time webmaster and liaison for the state’s storytelling organization Territory Tellers.
Refreshments will be served. The event is free, though donations to the museum are gratefully accepted.
