Free Storytelling Workshop

with Paul Ricciardi

Saturday, Apr. 20, 11am-1pm

Ancram Center for the Arts will host a free storytelling workshop designed to help participants craft and tell a compelling personal story.

The workshop is limited to 15. To register, email

Ancram Opera House
1330 County Route 7
Ancram, NY 12502

The class will be led by Ancram Center’s Paul Ricciardi, an award-winning educator who curates and directs the Center’s REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES series.

“Everyone has a story to tell,” said Ricciardi. “In this workshop students will practice exercises to help them hone their narratives and connect with an audience, the kind of connection that can only happen through the intimacy of storytelling.”

In recent years, the Storytelling Workshop has become a feeder for Ancram Center’s REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIES series, which has been a highlight of every season since 2017.

Ricciardi is the recipient of the Kennedy Center Teaching Artist Award and Kennedy Center Gold Medallion and a Professor on the theater faculty at the City University of New York/Kingsborough Community College.
