With Halloween almost here, SHINE storytellers are nearly done brewing their potent and true “Spooked” stories for the show on Thursday, October 19 at 7:00pm at the Santa Monica Playhouse.
True stories of facing fears include how a childhood near-drowning lead to personal triumph, the daredevil feats one woman engaged in to impress her fiancé, and a too-close brush with the afterlife.
This month’s storytellers are Preston Craig, Amy Ma, Terrie Silverman, Isabel Storey, Suzanne Travis, and Chris Yerga.
SHINE will be hosted in by Alan Aymie, a delightful actor, writer, and stand-up comedian. Alan’s first solo play, Child’s Play was seen in LA, NY and the HBO Comedy Festival in Aspen, Colorado. He followed that up with the award-winning play, RAP and most recently performed his critically-acclaimed solo play, A Child Left Behind in LA, NY, Ojai and Woodstock. Alan is the only performer/writer to have his work produced at the HBO Workspace, Comedy Central Stage, PSNBC Performing Space, HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and the HBO Screening Room.
Live music will be provided by Sahara Grim, an up-and-coming young singer/songwriter who is active on the local music scene. Sahara has recorded original music with Peter Sprague and performed for Gilbert Castellano's prestigious Young Lions Series. Her band has performed her original compositions at venues such as House of Blues, Music Box, and many more. Her first international success was in Japan, performing in various venues in 2017. She is currently an ethnomusicology-jazz studies major UCLA with a focus in vocal jazz performance. Her music touches on messages of nature, art, spirituality, and self-empowerment.
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.
