The Rangeley Friends of the Arts has received a grant from the Onion Foundation to host storytelling workshops, which are scheduled to be held twice a month with an opportunity to perform monthly.

Participants can craft their story with Rangeley Lakes Regional School English Teacher Tim Straub.

Participants should come to the workshop with some ideas for their own true-life story. They can learn to craft their story into its best presentation.

Workshops are set for 3-4 p.m. Saturday May 7, and 5-6 p.m. Wednesday, May 18, with a performance set for 7 p.m. Saturday, May 21.

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

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