There’s an interesting event coming up this Saturday night. It’s the debut of Lowell Storytelling which is the creation of Lowell’s Laura Frye. Saturday’s performance will feature six local residents sharing a true story of each of their lives in Lowell. The storytellers will be joined onstage by Renard Boissiere and Mike Tepper from Nardy Boy, a funk, Jazz, and Blues group from New Orleans and Bridgeport, CT.
The storytellers include: Christa Brown, MJ Bujold, Samantha Coleman, Vito Anthony Couch, John Curtis, and Peg Shanahan. The stories include a near-death experience, life in one of Lowell’s sober houses, a young man’s decision to join the US Marines during the Vietnam War, a young woman’s journey to buying her first home, and more.
This event is this Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 7:30 PM at the Richard and Nancy Donahue Family Academic Arts Center of MCC, formerly known as the Rialto Building (240 Central Street, Lowell, MA 01852). Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door.
