Let Live Theatre, 916 N Formosa Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046

My live theatre, one-woman show, tentatively titled, DID GANDHI HAVE CARPOOL? will play in its entirety June 2018 in the Hollywood Fringe Festival, Hollywood, California. Written by me (Stacy) and directed by acclaimed acting coach Deborah Lemen, it's a humorous story that weaves together fame, fortune, a lawsuit, divorce, human trafficking, prison, aging, and gratitude all together into one big messy, serendipitous event--that being the publication of a scandalous tell-all book. Falling under the category of "stranger than fiction"  this true rags-to-riches story will have you believing in miracles at a time in history when we need them most. I will perform an excerpt from this show to workshop it in front of a live audience.

FREE admission.

Do you have a story to tell, but you have no idea how to tell it? It could be that you haven't identified your story arc. Every story, no matter how big or small, must have a beginning, middle, and end. If you're confused how these elements apply to your story, just think how lost your readers will be! My talk, "Finding the Arc of Your Story" takes you through the process of find the storyline of what it is you want to say, so that your readers will be right there along with! A must for any storyteller, no matter what their medium may be.

I will be an independent judge for Combined Artform's Pick of the Fringe. As such, I attend a ton of Hollywood Fringe Festival productions across every genre, then offer input for the final selection of the weekly Pick of the Fringe, in which highlights from different top Hollywood Fringe shows are performed live. Many of the Pick of the Fringe choices go on to win major awards, including several Encore winners. If you come to a Pick of the Fringe performance, you’re going to see the best that the Hollywood Fringe Festival has to offer.

The theme of the Toastmasters District 15 Spring Conference is Mine Your Story. As a bonafide storyteller and story editor, I will present twice on May 6, talking about the importance of getting your message across through story, whether it be in a speech, book, advertisement, or screenplay. People will pay attention when you tell them a story. As World Champion of Public Speaking Darren Lacroix has reminded us, “No child ever said, ‘Mommy, will you tell me a PowerPoint?'”

Presented by the Park City Toastmasters for the Toastmasters District 15 Spring Conference opening event, Story Slam is storytelling at its best. Ever been to a poetry slam? This is the same thing, except the stories don’t have to rhyme (although, they can, if the speaker so chooses). Toastmasters and speakers of all walks of life will get up onstage and share their stories. Join Toastmaster and improv comedian, Jesse Parent and me, as we cohost a night of scripted and impromptu talks, sure to entertain and delight. Not a speaker? No problem. This fun event is open to the public. Just show up and prepare to have a good time.

Did you miss this class last semester? Here’s your chance to take it now. In this class I cover the steps necessary to take your book from manuscript to final book product, as well as how to distribute it to the world. I discuss the difference between self- and traditional publishing, benefits of self-publishing, costs, and how to self-publish on a budget. Along the way you’ll learn about ISBN assignment, copyrighting, formatting and cover design, print-on-demand, traditional printing, distribution, and marketing.
