Six Stories Up
Six Stories Up is part mentoring program, part magic. Each year we pair six Chicago storytellers with six middle school children to write six, ten-minute long theater pieces. Each team is encouraged to base their vignette on personal stories. These vignettes are then combined to create a full-length show. The set designer, mask maker, and stage manager also work with middle school-aged apprentices. The show runs two weekends at a professional theater.
Adults and children with and without disabilities, of all races, and income levels work together on equal terms. Both adults and children learn lifelong lessons, self-esteem blossoms, and community is built where none existed before.

The mission of Tellin' Tales Theatre is to shatter barriers between the disabled and able-bodied worlds through the transformative power of personal story. We bring together children and adults from both communities to share their stories in theatrically innovative productions and programs to promote awareness, understanding and acceptance.
