To Tell Tales

  • State Theatre Centre of WA 174-176 William Street Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

To Tell Tales provides a rare platform for young people and seniors in our community, to connect and learn from each other via the art of storytelling.

This unique public performance is the result of a one-month workshop series with Andrea Gibbs, Barefaced Stories co-founder and TEDx presenter, and fellow Barefaced storytellers Janette McGinty and Gary Steadman.

Presented in partnership with the City of Joondalup.


About Barefaced Stories

Barefaced Stories was created in 2010 by local performers and producers Andrea Gibbs and Kerry O’Sullivan. After Gibbs studied in NYC with award-winning storyteller Margot Leitman the pair were keen to start up a unique storytelling night in their own in home-town of Perth.

Wanting to inspire others to get involved and create a first-class show for their audience, the girls flew Leitman out from the USA in January 2011 to run a series of workshops for interested locals.  38 people signed up for that first workshop creating an unshakeable foundation of skilled raconteurs in Perth.


WHEN: Saturday 21 April, 2.00 – 4.00pm
WHERE: Studio Underground, State Theatre Centre of WA
