About the event
STORYTELLING WORKSHOP WITH JON BENNETT
Be trained by internationally acclaimed comedian-storyteller Jon Bennett in a workshop to find out how to tell a story, what makes a story GOOD, and leave with a story of your very own with an opportunity to present your story in a LIVE storytelling show at C.A.S.T.
Jon has spent the last 10 years as a professional touring performer performing at over 120 festivals around the globe. He regularly tours with the Moth Main Stage all over the US and internationally, while his stories are often heard on NPR, other radio shows and podcasts around the world. His writing and input has been included in 2 New York Times Best Selling books: Occasional Magic and How to Tell a Story.
About this Event
In this workshop we’ll share stories, break them down and dissect the process of modern storytelling. We will look at ways to generate stories, find the appropriate structure and learn what it takes to tell an entertaining story or even how to create an entire storytelling show of your own!
Bring a laptop (or pen and paper) and, if you have one, a short (<5 minutes) story from your own life that you’d like to work on. This will be an open, supportive environment with no experience necessary and no obligation to perform.
The workshop will conclude with an opportunity to perform your story in a mini-show at C.A.S.T. hosted by Jon Bennett.
Workshop begins at 12:30PM at 9050 Metcalf Ave, Overland Park, KS.
Workshop duration: 3 hours and 30 minutes (with breaks)
