Murray Storytelling Showcase

Storytelling Residencies

Residencies are a great opportunity & fun way for children, teens, and adults, to develop story writing & storytelling skills! 

There are typically four types of Storytelling Residencies:
   1. After school residencies held at an elementary school 
   2. In-class residency at a specific school and grade (closed to general)
   3. Residency at the Senior Recreation Center (open to general, ages 18+)
   4. Weekend residency (open to general, grades 3 - 12)

As residencies are confirmed, locations & schedules will be posted below.
*Please note: Not all schools participate in the program, so students are advised to choose the residency that will best fit their schedule.


Murray Storytelling Showcase - April 20, 2024

Participants in the Murray Storytelling Showcase are chosen from our various storytelling residencies that are held throughout the school year. Finalists from the Showcase are invited to participate in the  Annual County event, Story Crossroads, held in Murray Park and other county facilities. 


We had a wonderful time listening to a variety of stories from our community from our 2021-22 Season. You can watch most of the storytellers on our YouTube Channel:
