While working on the “Here & Gone” highlights, I tried so hard not to let myself think of what my story for No, YOU Tell It! would be. I wanted to come in fresh like the other storytellers and participate in the generative workshop from scratch like them. I had absolutely no idea where this process was about to take me. – Rosalie Chandler
Last but not least, our final storyteller is also the author of the Queens “Here & Gone” Highlights drawn from the archives of the Greater Astoria Historical Society. For this special show, the storytellers engaged with the history of the Westinghouse Time Capsule, North Beach, Astoria Pool Sentinels, and The First Photocopy to inspire their modern-day true tales.
The process helped Rosalie, like all of our storytellers, tell personal stories they may not have otherwise. We can’t wait for you to see them swap stories and step into each other’s life experiences.
Grab your tickets for Thursday’s show here and meet Rosalie!
