Storytime on Portland

Talent Show Silver Curtain

11:25am 4th March 2014

Your story could be the star of a new show at The Royal Manor Theatre on Portland.

Ten people will have their personal stories transformed into a live performance by Bristol Performer, Tom Marshman.

And the proceeds will go to the theatre in support of their sponsor a seat campaign.

Portland girl Storm Wallace is just one of the lucky few to be taking part, b-side Festival nominated Storm following her tireless community work on Portland during the recent storms that hit the Island.

b-side Festival Producer Sandy Kirkby said "There was so much focus on Portland during the recent severe weather and we were following the 'action' as it happened on Facebook and twitter. Storm's name kept cropping up and we could see her galvanising locals to clean the beach, help local people affected by the storms and much more. We want to celebrate local community heroes like Storm and this is a rather unique way to do it - now there will be a seat named in her honour at the theatre as well as The Storm Wallace story live on stage! "

If you'd like to find out more - go along to Jackson's Gallery in Fortuneswell, tonight from 7pm.
