Service to Stage: A Storytelling Event – Sept 11
Service can be an extraordinary, transformative experience. It can heal, inspire, challenge, and it makes for great stories. Whether it be a Peace Corps experience, a combat deployment, or a selfless act right here at home, anyone can serve – and everyone has a story,
On the evening of this Tuesday, September 11th – 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance – Veterans for American Ideals, Service Year Alliance and Armed Services Arts Partnership have teamed up for a special storytelling performance “Service to Stage.”
Our emcee is the incredible Melissa Fitzgerald, actress (The West Wing)and the Director of the Advancing Justice Initiative at the National Association of Drug Court Professionals.
The show will feature seven perspectives on service. Our performers include three veterans, two service year alumni, and two of our wartime allies (Special Immigrant Visa recipients) from Iraq and Afghanistan. Each storyteller has completed intensive training with Story District to hone their true, compelling story of service, which they will share on the DC Improv stage.
Tickets are $15 for advance purchase and $20 at the door. Doors open at 6:30pm and the show will begin at 7:30pm. Drinks will be available for purchase but food will not be available. All ages are welcome.
