The Season Opening of the Monti

The Monti opened its season with both some laughs and some tender moments. Five storytellers captivated a sizeable crowd at the ArtsCenter with their own unique take on the theme of heroism. For those unfamiliar with it, The Monti is a storytelling show. Five performers each tell a story about 12 minutes centered around a central theme.  The Monti is held once a month. Look for more photos from the next show in October.
