Boy meets girl: It’s one of the oldest stories in the book. But when Kyle asked for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage, a challenging road lay ahead. Kyle took the stage at our August 2017 live storytelling event to share this intimate, inspiring story of love’s ability to overcome any obstacle. Kyle’s story elicited one of the most powerful audience responses that we’ve ever seen at All Y’all.
All Y’all: Lightning Round
As we enjoy a brief hiatus from organizing live storytelling events, Team All Y’all is experimenting with a new concept: short (three minutes or less) stories from our call-in hotline. If you’ve got an entertaining, unbelievable or otherwise interesting anecdote that you can tell in less than three minutes, please call our storyteller hotline at (318) 582-0665. Please call in and share your story by Wednesday, Jan. 31. We’ll edit the short stories that we receive into an all-new episode (if anyone calls!). Learn more about All Y’all: Lightning Round here.
All Y’all podcast episodes and live storytelling events are supported by our sponsors: Holiday Lanes, Maccentric and Williams Creative Group. Without the support of these community-minded businesses, All Y’all live events and podcasts would be extremely difficult for us to pull off.
The 12th All Y’all live storytelling event, “The Skin I’m In”, will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26 at the historic Woman’s Department Club of Shreveport. The event will feature six true tales of the human body, the search for identity, and what happens when the world gets under our skin. Admission is $15 and advance ticket purchase is recommended. Purchase tickets here. A high-quality cash bar will be provided by Wine Country Bistro and live musical interludes will be performed by Highland-based electronic musician Nate Treme.
Storytellers for “The Skin I’m In” include Anwar Fikri, Coleen McKechnie, Kyle Denton, Roxann Johnson and Dr. Navdeep Samra. One or two more storytellers may be announced prior to the show – follow the official Facebook event for more updates. Like all All Y’all live events, “The Skin I’m In” is made possible with the incredible support of our presenting sponsor, Holiday Lanes, as well as additional support from Maccentric and Williams Creative Group. Please consider supporting these businesses, which have proven time and again that they care deeply about their community. RSVP to the Facebook event for “The Skin I’m In.” Please consider sharing our event with your friends on Facebook – a share helps more than you could possibly know!
All Y’all live storytelling events are recommended for mature audiences.
