We’ve all got stories to tell, but how do you make your story the best story? Join us on Tuesday, April 19 at JBSC as author Corey Rosen guides us through his latest book which shows us how to do just that. By exploring storytelling techniques from improvisational theatre, Rosen’s book, Your Story, Well Told, is an accessible guide for all ages and all skill levels. Crafted to help ordinary people tell extraordinary stories, this laugh-out-loud handbook covers everything from how to tell a good story to going off-script.

Laugh along with tales of performance triumphs (and disasters) and explore ways to tell your own story with confidence and spontaneity. From brainstorming and development to performance and memorization techniques, you’ll learn how to tell a good story with a variety of structures and editing approaches, broadly-tested improv exercises designed to stimulate creativity, and quick, easy lessons on how to build out your story to tell.

This program is free and open to all students in grades 8-12.
