I'm Looking forward to a Weekend Full of Stories

Labor Day Weekend may be over but there are still plenty of fun weekends planned in Grand Rivers. This weekend you will find me at the Second Annual Grand Rivers Southern Storytelling Event. This celebration of the traditional art form of the spoken word will take place on September 11 and 12 at the Badgett Playhouse Theater. Scheduled performers for this year’s event include Storytellers Michael Reno Harrell, Mitch Capel, and Kim Wietkamp. All great storytellers (I picked them).

I saw Michael perform at last years Storytelling event and let me tell you he rocked it! Funny. Funny. He now has a new one man play – “My Roots Are Showing”… a southern boy’s bumpy journey to manhood. I’m hoping we get a story or two from the play.

This will be Mitch Capels first time in Grand Rivers. I’m looking forward to his stories. Mitch has an impressive resume and is a storyteller, recording artist, poet, and actor.

I’m also excited that Kim Weitkamp will be with us this year. Kim combines humor with stories of her childhood and a few big whoppers that make a delightful performance.

Join us and remember just how entertaining stories, songs, and southern life can be! Box office number is 888-362-4223.
