Kim Weitcamp is a major WOW in the storytelling world. I first heard her tell stories at the 2012 Sierra Storytelling Festival. Her name was new to me; I didn’t know what to expect. Well, I got a heavy dose of amazing telling! Kim Weitcamp’s personal stories cut straight to the heart by way of the funny bone. Kim’s timing is impeccable, and her honey-coated voice will sink right into you. Along with her stories, Kim has a smooth as silk singing voice, sharing original songs that compliment each tale. At the end of the festival, I marched right up to her, and said, “I am in love with you. And I am now your biggest fan in California. I sure hope you will visit my town some day.”
And here she comes to Sonora, CA! Kim will perform for the 12th Annual “For Adult Ears Only” Storytelling Concert at Stage 3 Theatre on Monday, March 10th, 2014. The show starts at 7pm, and tickets include a nice dessert. Plus, wine is available by the glass. AND the evening will include opportunities to win two very nice gift baskets. The event is sponsored by Delta Kappa Gamma-Iota Epsilon and The Mother Lode Storytelling Guild. Both groups sponsor worthwhile family literacy projects in our Sierra Foothill communities. (In fact, MLSG will host a regional storytelling retreat in October 2014: “Sierra Story Winds.” Watch for more information and SAVE THE DATE!)
$20 TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT MOUNTAIN BOOKSHOP AT THE SONORA JUNCTION SHOPPING CENTER AND AT STAGE 3 THEATRE‘S BOX OFFICE.
Come out and enjoy a great evening of unique entertainment while supporting some great community service work. AND BTW (by the way), you can expect something wonderful!
If you’d like a preview of Kim’s telling, as well as some other amazing storytellers, travel over to the Mariposa Storytelling Festival (hosted by the Mariposa County Arts Council)on March 7th & 8th, or up to the John Muir Theatre in Yosemite on Sunday, March 9th. Kim is on the West Coast to be one of the featured tellers for this great regional storytelling event. I’ll be there, getting an early taste of Kim, and having a chance to hear a host of other fantastic tellers from all over the U.S.
