The Rangeley Friends of the Arts plans to host storytelling workshops with Rangeley Lakes Regional School English teacher Tim Straub beginning next month.

The organization received a Discovery Grant from the Onion Foundation to host the workshops, to be held twice a month with an opportunity to perform monthly.

Workshops are set for 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13; 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 29; with a performance at 7 p.m. Saturday Feb. 12. They are also set for 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 17, and 3 p.m. Saturday, March 5, with a performance at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 12.

All workshops and performances will be at the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St. in Rangeley.

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

There is no fee for the workshops. There will be tickets sold for the performances. Ticket money will help underwrite the workshops. Anyone interested should email Straub at [email protected].
