Storytelling | Dia De Los Muertos

Commemorate, commiserate, and celebrate with Story Club South Side!

Join us as we invite spirits living and dead to tell stories and celebrate Dia de los Muertos together!

We will be creating an altar de ofrenda at the show, and our audience is invited to participate by bringing a photo or memento of someone who has passed on. We'll have art supplies on hand, as well, for those who'd like to make a tribute on the spot.
