SEQUIM — Olympic Theatre Arts Center aims to offer a comfortable, safe storytelling evening for grown-ups with “Tale Spinners” — a new, monthly event that will debut at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 30.
Storytellers and listeners will meet in the Gathering Hall, a newly revamped space for intimate events. OTA invites the public to come share and hear “Scary Stories,” the first theme of the series.
Costumes are encouraged to get into the Halloween spirit.
Hosted by Star Pittman, the event features seasoned local storytellers as well as “walk-in” storytellers from the public. OTA invites everyone to hone their ability to recount fun events from their lives.
“I believe that each of us has a story to tell,” Pittman said. “I recently moved to Sequim and love to walk the beaches and trails. I am amazed by the conversations I have with random strangers who have the most interesting tales to tell.
“My desire is to have a safe, comfortable place to share little pieces of our lives.”
Refreshments will be available. Tickets are $10 online at olympictheatrearts.org or at the door. All proceeds go to fund OTA’s “Deck the Walls” exterior embellishment project to restore the exterior of the theatre’s historic building.
Proof of vaccine or negative COVID-19 test less than 72 hours old is required for admittance to the theatre; face masks are mandatory.
