Connie’s three-day workshop, “Taking Your Story to the Stage”, emphasizes storytelling performance and supports participants in taking their next step. As part of this workshop, her participants have the opportunity to exercise these new stage skills in a formal performance setting. The last four “Slice of Life” shows have been sell-outs – so get your tickets early!
“The Round Robin of storytellers at Connie Regan-Blake’s “Slice of Life” show gave me a rare listening treat. Each story was as unique as the voice that told it. What great fun to hear a mountain art form so well-spun!”
