Have you ever “lost it”? On Sunday, July 12, at 7 p.m., SHINE storytellers will share true tales of when they went “Out of Control” — and what they learned from the experience. This popular storytelling event takes place monthly at the Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica.

In July, SHINE will be hosted by Terrie Silverman, a well-known writer/performer and artist-in-residence at Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center. Terrie has been presented at theaters and art festivals including MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art), HBO Workspace, KPFK Radio, UCLA, Beyond Baroque, and Highways. She founded and runs Creative Rites, offering workshops and coaching for writing, performance and creative expression.

Live music will be provided by Little Dawnee Frinta, a respected singer, multi-instrumental musician and songwriter. Dawn’s songs are poetic, philosophical, edgy and deeply intimate. An L.A. staple and passionate performer, Dawn has enjoyed world-wide placements for many of her compositions and has had songs covered by several L.A. bands. In 2012, she released her own album “Stark Raving Calm.”

Storytellers for SHINE are chosen from some of the nation’s top award-winning storytellers, writers, and performers. Amateur storytellers of all ages and walks of life also take the stage. Six storytellers are booked in advance, and one is chosen from the audience in a random drawing.

SHINE is held monthly on Sunday evenings at the Promenade Playhouse, 1404 Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and show starts at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in advance at www.StoreyProductions.com. Cash and checks only at the door.

Those interested in becoming a SHINE storyteller are encouraged to visit www.StoreyProductions.com in advance for monthly theme and submission guidelines.

SHINE is produced by Isabel Storey and presented by Storey Productions in association with Santa Monica Repertory Theater and UCLArts and Healing.
