SHINE Storytelling: "Music"

SHINE Storytelling: SHINE performers are tuning up for the show's annual “Music” event on Thursday, August 17 at 7:00pm at the Santa Monica Playhouse. Storytellers and musical artists will share inspiring true tales of how music changed their lives. This special edition of SHINE includes live musical performances.

Among the stories, we’ll hear how a shy girl became a hero on the dance floor, how a bleak night abroad turned magical because of a saxophone, and how playing an instrument for a police officer changed the course of a man’s life.

The evening’s storytellers are: Sean Golightly, Munir Griffin, Kat Kambes, Zana Messia, Kate Romero, Alex Stein, Lisa Williams.

SHINE “Music” will be hosted by Brenda Varda, an exciting singer/songwriter and award-winning playwright and actor. Brenda has had numerous works produced in Los Angeles both as playwright and composer/lyricist, including Fables Du Theatre, Wench, Liquid, and Things that Fall for the Sky.  Her show Nine Dresses received acclaim at Sacred Fools as part of the 2016 Hollywood Fringe Festival.  Her newest show This is my Garbage was featured in the Son of Semele Solo Creation Festival in July. She also creates collective works with other artists through Wordspace, a creative writer's organization.

Storytellers for SHINE are chosen from some of the nation’s top award-winning storytellers, writers, and performers. New storytellers from a variety of backgrounds also take the stage.
