About the Festival

Speak Up, Rise Up is a first year storytelling festival being held at the Connelly Theater from August 14th-20th with a focus on bringing traditional and non-traditional performers together. Our focus is to raise the profile of people and communities of stories we don’t often hear. The idea is to bring together people’s stories and put them, literally, on the big stage with other featured performances throughout the week.

The purpose of the festival is two fold: first, to bring together traditional and non-traditional performers to tell and share their stories. We will be offering a series of community workshops to various community groups, and showcase their final shows as part of the festival.

Second, is to bring the world of storytelling to the big stage. Too often we have shows in backs of bars or black box theaters and are never allowed to explore the depth and theatricality of a stage.

This is a partner event that will NOT be held at Civic Hall.
