Have you ever wished you could keep a crowd on the edge of their seats with a  good story?  Well now is your chance!


Workshop and Performance Date:

  • Workshop:

    • Saturday Nov 5th 12-1 PM at the RFA Lakeside Theater

  • Performance on Friday Nov 11: 7 PM

The RFA has received a  Grant from the Onion Foundation and Maine Community Foundation to host Storytelling Workshops. The workshops are coupled with an opportunity to perform. Come craft your story with our favorite funny man, storyteller extraordinaire and RLRS English teacher, Tim Straub.

Participants should come to the workshop with some ideas for your own story, something that really happened to you. Since you are telling a true story, there are no lines that need to be memorized.  In the workshop you will learn to craft your story into its best presentation.

There is no fee for the workshops. There will be a ticket charged for the performance. Ticket money will help underwrite the workshops. Anyone interested should contact Tim Straub at FMI email us at

The RFA Lakeside Theater will play host to the storytelling performances, known as The Kitchen Table, as that’s the place where many stories are told across the globe. Upcoming performance date is Friday November 11 at 7 PM. General Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for students under 18. Tickets will be available at the door beginning at 6 PM the night of the show.
