Interested in becoming a student storyteller?


From the Storytelling Festival:  Youth storytellers have been part of the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival for twenty-five years.  We believe they bring a vibrant presence to stages at the event.  Open youth auditions will be held at the Orem Public Library on Thursday, March 16.  Anyone interested in scheduling can email me at or call the Timpanogos Storytelling Institute office at 228-7384.  The deadline to sign up for an audition is 5:00 pm on Monday, March 13.

During the first audition round, students will be asked to present a two minute portion of their full story.  Finalists will be invited back to the call-back auditions the following week.  If they are invited back to the finals, youth will tell the full version of their story, which can be 3-9 minutes long.  All participants will be judged on performance skills such as poise, voice expression, eye contact, and body language.  Please click here to see a description of the rubric the judges will be using to evaluate the stories.  If your school is outside of the Wasatch Front, we can also accept electronic entries.  Please contact me for more information.
