Stories that Soar Brings Deaf & Blind Students' Stories to Life

"Stage Door" by slimmer_jimmer on Flickr
Now this is a cool idea: Stories that Soar is a nonprofit performance troupe that travels from school to school, allowing children to put stories they've written into the troupe's Magic Box and then see selected stories acted out on stage. And this month, they're traveling to the Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and Blind. On January 20th, they'll perform stories that the children at the schools have written - and the kids won't get to know which stories were picked until they show up for the show.

To ensure that the stories connect with their audience, the troupe has put "a big emphasis on heavy vibrations and bright colors as the performers work to tell the stories in layers," according to this article.

The troupe will be perfoming in Tucson, at the Berger Perfoming Arts Center, at 1200 W. Speedway. It's January 20th at 7PM. Wish I could make it down to Tucson!
