TELLABRATION!™ began in 1988 in six towns across Connecticut. More than 1,000 story listeners enjoyed that first evening’s performances. The following year Texas and Missouri joined Connecticut to entertain a total of 3,000 audience members. Since then, TELLABRATION!™ has grown to more than 333 sites with an audience of more than 34,000 and has evolved from a showcase for storytelling to a community-support project. Many TELLABRATION!™ events around the county use the donations they collect to help support schools, libraries, shelters for the homeless, Habitat for Humanity, Food Banks, and Crisis Centers. PSG hopes these performances grow to a place where they, too, can help with community literacy programs.
