Our annual celebration of storytelling and no-holds barred comedy, all for a good cause.

Your ticket purchase supports Young Storytellers. Each year, we bring over 1,600 volunteers into public school classrooms from 5th grade to high school to work one-on-one with students as they imagine, develop, and write their own short screenplays. At the culmination of sessions, Hollywood actors perform the students scripts on stage or film.

Our mission is to inspire young people to discover the power of their own voice.
