SHINE Storytelling: "Unexpected Grace"

SHINE Storytelling: As we enter the holiday season, what better time to consider how kindness and forgiveness may unexpectedly touch our lives? Storytellers share their surprising experiences in SHINE “Unexpected Grace” on Thursday, November 16 at 7:00pm at the Santa Monica Playhouse

SHINE is a unique storytelling event that features storytellers coming together once a month to share inspiring true stories.  

The show will be hosted this month in by Kirsten Wasson, a delightful writer and performer. Kristen has presented stories at many venues including SHINE, Tales By The Sea, P.E.Z., I Love A Good Story, and Tell It! and has also read stories on KCRW’s UNfictional. She recently published a book of poetry, and her memoir, Unaccompanied Minor: Growing Up in Flight, is forthcoming.

Live music will be provided by Stacey Anne, a talented singer-songwriter who has performed and collaborated with many of LA's top musicians and bands. Stacey is known for her dynamic stage presence, versatility, and killer vocal range. She has been a lead vocalist for a series of popular original and cover bands, with whom she has collectively toured all over the West Coast. She is currently working on a new original Americana/ blues-rock album.

Storytellers for SHINE are chosen from some of the nation’s top award-winning storytellers, writers, and performers. New storytellers of all ages and walks of life also take the stage.

SHINE is held monthly at the Santa Monica Playhouse, 1211 4th Street, Santa Monica 90401.  Convenient parking is located directly across the street, in City Parking Structure #1.

Tickets are $12, with student/senior discount also available. Tickets may be purchased in advance at Cash and checks only at the door.
